The staff with the Rural STEM Education Center provide instructional support for public and private school math, science, and computer science teachers, preservice teachers, school administrators, and out-of-school STEM educators. This assistance can be in the classroom, during one-on-one and small-group workshops at schools or at A-State, or in the format of large-group presentations. The staff support STEM educators in all areas currently emphasized by state and national STEM education efforts.
