This video describes how the Louisiana Math and Science Teacher Institute (LaMSTI) partners with school districts around Baton Rouge to help districts achieve their goals in providing quality learning opportunities in STEM.

LaMSTI is a professional master’s degree program at Louisiana State University (Baton Rouge) in which secondary math and science teachers learn, communicate and improve the knowledge base essential to teaching mathematics and science. The goal of LaMSTI is to create a well-integrated, effective professional degree program and around it a professional community spanning the university and K-12.

One hundred twenty teachers have been directly supported by LaMSTI. Of these, 96 have earned 30 hours of graduate credit in the program, and 81 have earned the LSU Master of Natural Sciences degree. An additional 55 STEM teachers supported by other grants benefited directly from participation in LaMSTI programs, and 51 of these earned the MNS degree The average number of students taught yearly by these teachers is between 60 and 130. Therefore, the number of K-12 student-course-years impacted annually by LaMSTI is around 17,000.
