FCR-STEM

The FCR-STEM’s mission is to help the State of Florida improve STEM teaching and learning in grades K- 12 and prepare students for higher education and STEM careers in the 21st century.

Florida Center for Research in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics

LSI houses The Florida Center for Research in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (FCR–STEM), a multidisciplinary research center created by the Florida Legislature and competitively awarded to Florida State University in 2007. The FCR-STEM's mission is to help the State of Florida improve STEM teaching and learning in grades K- 12 and prepare students for higher education and STEM careers in the 21st century. These broad goals are addressed primarily through high-quality research, teacher professional development, and the development of innovative resources and tools to support instruction aligned with curriculum standards.

Among FCR-STEM's significant accomplishments are (1) research studies investigating teaching and learning in varied contexts and the impacts of professional development on teacher and student outcomes; (2) the design and delivery of intensive professional development for over 2,500 K-12 math and science teachers in Florida; and (3) the development of CPALMS (www.cpalms.org), a web-based system of over 10,000 free lessons and other instructional resources vetted by content and teacher experts, and online tools to support teachers' planning and instruction.
