Welcome, the Hub connects all projects

The Math and Science Partnership Network


MSPnet is an electronic community that serves all educators interested in improving Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science. It supports the National Science Foundation STEM-C Partnership program which combines and advances the efforts of both the former Math and Science Partnership (MSP) and the former Computing Education for the 21st Century (CE21) programs.

The majority of resources generated by NSF projects are available to the public at large and we invite you to visit our library, join MSPnet Academy webinars and sign-up for our newsletter. Members of funded MSP, CE21 and STEM-C projects are also invited to make use of Project Spaces to collaborate with project staff and participants.


This week we feature resources and papers related to the active Discussion Forum, "PCK Measures for Secondary Math and Science Teachers." Does your project focus on Pedagogical Content Knowledge? What measures or assessment strategies have you used? Please share your experiences in the Discussion Forum. These forums are open to the public, but only members may post. Log in to post, or send your experiences to contact@mspnet.org.
