  3. Form interdisciplinary research teams of STEM content and education faculty and graduate students, together with teachers, to develop, deliver, and assess/evaluate our programs and activities.
  4. Serve as an interdisciplinary education center to develop research-rich experiences for pre-service and in-service teachers to deepen and enhance STEM concepts and pedagogy.
  5. Develop outreach activities and programs for students of all ages to support knowledge acquisition in the STEM disciplines.
