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.
