Professional Learning for Educators and Quality Student Programs


We believe Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics are all creative, hands-on, and exciting subjects. Being curious about our world, and worlds beyond, is central to the human experience. It is our hope that all people have the chance to celebrate this basic human instinct and be able to understand and influence the world around them.

Math Teachers' Circle

Marquette-Alger teachers have been working to build mathematical communities with professors and math education students to do math and problem solving for the pure enjoyment of it. This is powerful way to bridge the traditional educational divide by providing an opportunity for teacher to enrich their own experience of mathematics and professors to share their enjoyment of math with K-12 education.  More information about this program can be found here.
