Project Partnerships

One of the most valuable features of Project MAST is its national and global reach into a wealth of knowledge and interactions from both the public and private sectors. In addition to the University and State alliances, Project MAST (NSF) has 41 school districts with 45 under-performing high schools. There have been also 12 supporting partners, so participants will experience the benefits of interfacing with visiting instructors from across the United States. Local and regional team members have offered students and teachers sustained, reliable support. Racial, ethnic, gender and geographic diversity also enriches the Project MAST collaboration.
