MSPnet is an electronic community that serves NSF's MSP and STEM+C programs.
It welcomes all educators and researchers interested in improving Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science.
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 encouraged to log-in and make use of Project Spaces for collaboration.
The TEAMS MSP recently released a summary of resources from NSF PRIME funded projects that may be helpful to evaluators within the MSPnet community. This week we feature this summary along with some of the resources highlighted in it. Browse the Library
