The Center for Advanced STEM Education (formerly Math, Science, and Environmental Education (CMSEE) was established by Dr. Larry S. Johnson and Dr. Joseph Raab in 1993 to serve Colorado schools by offering programs and services in math, science, and environmental studies. One of the goals of the Center is to have math and science taught in a more activity-oriented way.  Dr. Johnson, former Director of the Center, believed that students have a better chance of retaining information if they participate in an activity, rather than have a teacher just tell them the facts. The Center for Advanced STEM Education is part of the Metropolitan State University of Denver's College of Letters, Arts and Sciences.
