"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 1998-2004
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.
