STEMTEC's fundamental objective is to improve science and mathematics teaching in the schools by educating a generation of teachers who are better prepared in the content and pedagogy of these fields. STEMTEC will also contribute to the important task of elevating the status of teaching as a profession on the campus and in the community. The programs we discuss below are designed to meet the specific goals, but they will also contribute to a broader agenda of changing the campus culture and reshaping how we teach science and mathematics to all students. The following specific project goals address the needs of the future teachers who will teach science and mathematics at all grade levels:

Achieving the project's goals requires a variety of related efforts which will be covered in turn in the following sections.
