The Massachusetts Science and Math Institute is a culmination of the 2018-2019 Ambassadors program and a recognition of the high-quality STEM instruction across the Commonwealth. During the past year, 34 math and science Ambassadors worked with their teams to develop high-quality and standards-aligned tasks. During the Institute the Ambassadors will share the 4-8 grade math tasks and 6-12 grade science tasks developed through an iterative process of testing and revisions. Additional sessions will engage participants in learning about the educator-generated rubric for high-quality tasks, and the process by which tasks were developed and piloted. 

Keynote Speaker

John has also: written his own theorem published multiple papers in prestigious mathematics and scientific journals been on the Forbes' "30 under 30" list of outstanding young scientists committed to sparking a passion for STEM within the next generation
