National Science Foundation
In a globally networked, highly mobile society, education has few boundaries: learning can take place anywhere, and at any time of life. Partnerships across sectors can ensure that the latest information about what works in formal and informal education is mobilized to help prepare all of the nation's citizens to fully participate in this fast-changing world. The National Science Foundation (NSF) works with the National Governors Association (NGA) and others to ensure that all America's citizens receive a solid grounding in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), and that teaching, learning and technology are used to maximum advantage in preparing our youth for successful careers and informed citizenship. The Highlights below are examples of NSF funded projects that have made a difference.
