NSF will award grants to partnership-driven projects to develop innovative ways to improve K-12 student achievement in mathematics and science. Administrators, mathematics and science teachers and guidance counselors in K-12 partner organizations join forces with faculty in mathematics, science, engineering, education faculty and administrators in higher education. The partner organizations commit to implementing coordinated institutional change to encourage the success of the projects. Partners and partner organizations may include a wide variety of business and industry, community organizations, state education agencies, science centers and museums, and private foundations among others. MSP projects are designed to make evidence-based contributions to the learning and teaching knowledge of a larger MSP Learning Network. Ideally, the MSP Learning Network will share successful teaching strategies, provide training and encouragement for mathematics and science teachers and generally improve learning for all students.
