Missouri Math and Science Coalition

The Missouri Math and Science Coalition is a group of business, education, government and community stakeholders who have come together to foster collaboration to ensure Missouri citizens are equipped with knowledge and skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The Missouri Chamber has been a strong supporter of the mission since its inception and facilitates the coalition, which has an impressive list of achievements.

The group has helped secure more than $4 million in state and private funds to bring into Missouri classrooms cutting-edge technology and professional development provided by eMINTS (Enhancing Missouri’s Instructional Networked Teaching Strategies). The organization has also advocated state policy initiatives, such as streamlining alternative certification for teachers, in order to fill teaching shortfalls in critical areas such as math and science. In addition, the organization has taken great steps in raising public awareness of STEM in our state.
