About VI-STEM Institute
These workshops are supported with funding from the National Science Foundation, through VI-EPSCoR grants. These professional development programs are built on a strategic partnership between the UVI College of Science and Mathematics, UVI School of Education and VI Department of Education.
VI-EPSCoR's K-12 education activities focus on strengthening the quality of science and math education in the Territory's public schools. They supported the development of a new Masters program in Mathematics for Secondary Educators at UVI and have partnered with the University's Division of Education and Division of Science and Mathematics, the Virgin Islands Department of Education, and other community stakeholders in a National Science Foundation Math-Science Partnership (MSP-Start) planning grant to strengthen K-12 STEM education in the territory.
