Institute for Science + Math Education

The University of Washington Institute for Science + Math Education (ISME) creates partnerships to envision, cultivate, and study equity-focused educational models and practices in areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

The opportunity to learn in STEM fields is critical to young people’s ability to shape their futures and their present. To broaden opportunities for young people, we develop innovative projects across the K-12 grade span in both formal and informal learning environments. We closely study these projects to develop knowledge about how to broaden participation in STEM.
