According to an article in the August 16th edition of the Anniston Star, written by Anne W. Anderson, a staff writer for the Star,
the state is working on ways to recruit more teachers to be a part of the Alabama Science in Motion program (ASIM).
Anderson examines the current reach of the program and highlights JSU's regional program.
Originally designed to provide assistance
to math and science teachers conducting these programs in rural high schools, ASIM has expanded its training to include programs at the elementary and middle schools
and extended its reach statewide through regional programs all linked through
the Alabama Math, Science and Technology
Initiative (AMSTI) with schools now eligible to be certified as AMSTI schools
and to gain access to state-of-the-art classroom equipment. JSU is one of 11 universities around the state providing space and
administering the regional program as part of its in-service department.
