Our vision is to improve STEM literacy and education locally, nationally, and internationally.
We want to help you leverage the research that you do to:
- Broaden Impacts
- Expand funding
- Improve STEM education and literacy
- Prepare the next generation of researchers, teachers, engineers, and scientists
We accomplish this by improving the content knowledge and pedagogy of educators through professional development, implementing citizen science and community outreach programs, and conducting project evaluation and educational research to help you demonstrate the impacts of your work.
CSTL works with academic, government, community, and citizen researchers to design and implement proposals and projects that achieve this vision.
We can help you to broaden impacts of STEM related research through collaborative grant development, consultation services, educational research, and evaluation and assessment.
