"We must prepare our 21st century workforce for a 21st century world. Scientific and technological opportunities demand dramatic improvement in K-12 mathematics and science education. K-12 school systems and higher education institutions together must meet the challenge to improve mathematics and science achievement of all of our children."

Dr. Rita Colwell, Director, National Science Foundation

The Math and Science Partnership (MSP) program addresses a portion of the President’s challenge—enunciated in No Child Left Behind—to strengthen K-12 science and mathematics education. The MSP program promotes a vision of education as a continuum that begins with our youngest learners and progresses through adulthood. The program supports partnerships that unite K-12 schools, institutions of higher education and other stakeholders in activities that ensure that no child is left behind.
