MULTI

MULTI is a Community Approach to Engaging Students and Teachers in Effective STEM Education

MULTI (NSF 1615193) will advance efforts of the Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST) program to better understand and promote practices that increase students' motivations and capacities to pursue careers in fields of science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) by implementing a strategy that purposefully combines educational methodologies based on the Global Learning and Observation to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) program. Students will have opportunities to increase knowledge and skills. Pre-service and in-service teachers will participate in sessions that will help them attract and retain more students in education pathways to STEM careers. The goal is to modify and refine a community-based model that will comprehensively address teacher preparedness and student participation in STEM fields.
