AZIMASE now working to prepare students to succeed in the “New Arizona”

November 20, 2006

By Flinn Foundation

The Arizona Initiative in Math & Science Education (AZIMASE) will be a campaign in which higher education, business, K-12 schools and teacher organizations, philanthropies, and state government will act together to upgrade the quality and outcomes of math and science education for all Arizona students, K-20.

AZIMASE aims to develop an education system that routinely graduates students able to compete in math, science, and technology with anyone in the world, either in the demanding technical environments of advanced manufacturing or in academic research labs. We want to educate minds that can succeed in a challenging technical workplace with constantly changing needs, as well as minds that can map the far edges of novel research.
