Susan Davis Announces $2.9 Million Federal Grant to
Encourage Math and Science Education
“San Diego’s dynamic economy already helps set the pace when it comes to innovative ideas in math and science, but we know we need to do an even better job teaching and inspiring the next generation of innovators,” said Davis. “While the rest of the world looks to enhance their own innovation economies, this grant will help keep San Diego a step ahead, which is critical in the competitive global environment.”
The federal grant was awarded by the National Science Foundation to the San Diego State University Noyce Mathematics and Science Master-Teaching Fellowship Program. The program focuses on improvement of classroom practices, the development leadership skills, and opportunities to be mentors and teacher leaders.
As a member of the House Education and the Workforce Committee Davis has been a strong advocate for encouraging math and science education in our schools.
