Alabama Math, Science, and Technology Initiative

AMSTI logoThe Alabama Math, Science, and Technology Initiative (AMSTI), is the Alabama State Department of Education's sponsored initiative to improve math and science teaching statewide.

The program provides three basic services: professional development, equipment and materials, and on-site support. Schools become official AMSTI Schools by sending all of their math and science teachers, and administrators to two-week Summer Institutes for two summers. At these Institutes, teachers receive grade and subject-specific professional development that is highly applicable to their classrooms.

AMSTI at JSU provides teachers with the equipment, supplies, and resources needed to effectively engage students with hands-on, inquiry-based learning. The resources arrive to the teacher ready for immediate use. Also provided is extensive, on-site support and mentoring by trained specialists.
