How Design Can Get Kids On The Path To Tech Careers: A Conversation With Dr. Stephanie Pace Marshall, The Founder Of A New Type Of Science And Math Academy, Stephanie Marshall
Stephanie Pace Marshall, Ph.D.
An interview with Dr. Stephanie Pace Marshall about educational design and the design of the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy. "IMSA sought not only to develop decidedly different scientific minds, but also to develop a decidedly different residential learning community -- one that was nurturing and innovative, and one that instilled a sense of stewardship, and an obligation to give back. As a dynamic teaching and learning laboratory, IMSA continues to evolve, yet the roots of our founding ideas and goals remain."

The Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy (IMSA) serves as a catalyst to improve teaching and learning in mathematics and science. This article describes IMSA initiatives that have statewide impact, including the IMSA Excellence 2000+ (E2K+) Program, which is designed to enrich mathematics and science exploration among middle school students. E2K+ addresses Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) learning standards and recommended National Science Foundation (NSF) Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) learning outcomes.
