A Guide for Creating Industry Education Partnerships
The Center for Science, Mathematics and Technology at Mississippi State University was established in 1996. During this time of service, the Center has been awarded sixteen grants totaling over $9 million from agencies such as the National Science Foundation, United States Golf Association, the Appalachian Regional Commission, and the Department of Education. The Center's programs have impacted hundreds of teachers and students in the state of Mississippi and the nation.
