About the Science and Mathematics Teaching Center:

The Science and Mathematics Teaching Center (SMTC) is devoted to excellence in preK-20 science and mathematics teaching and learning. Housed in the College of Education, the SMTC facilitates professional development that supports educators in Wyoming and across the United States.

The SMTC serves the University in many capacities, including facilitating collaboration between UW faculty and K-12 educators; serving as a resource center for teachers; conducting research; and providing professional development and outreach services including masters level degree programs tailored for Wyoming’s in-service teachers.

The Center offers 3 graduate degree programs with multiple concentrations and endorsement options. Through its commitment to both the art and science of teaching, the Center draws an interdisciplinary group of faculty from across the University. Each graduate cohort is taught by a balanced team of education and content experts to help students deepen their understanding of educational theory, teaching practices, and subject matter content.

To further support science education through collaborative endeavors that honor the expertise of all stakeholders and are rooted in the research on science teaching and learning, the Science Professional Development team, an entity within the SMTC, emerged as a result of over a decade of collaborations between the SMTC and school districts, community organizations, and other entities around the state and region. The team offers ongoing workshops with school districts to respond to teacher and district needs. The team’s support ranges from open enrollment to district-specific, synchronous online or in-person, and several hour to multi-day sessions with preK-12 teachers, instructional facilitators/coaches, and administrators across Wyoming.
