Project MIST (Mathematics Interdisciplinary with Science using Technology) provides teacher development to middle school science, math and elementary school teachers from fifth through eighth grades.
The project organizes teachers into an interdisciplinary triad and provides 75 teachers with a two-week summer institute as well as continued course work during the academic year. Participating teachers use real-time video conferencing during the academic year to design and implement classroom-based research projects. Participants are recognized as fellows and earn graduate credits in mathematics, science and education.
Project MIST is a partnership between the Clark County School District Division of Curriculum and Professional Development (CPD/CCSD), the UNLV College of Education and the UNLV College of Sciences. The project is supported by a grant from the Nevada State Department of Education.
