  AMSTI - Alabama Math Science and Technology Initiative  
  The Alabama Math Science and Technology Initiative (AMSTI) has as its vision that all students will develop a knowledge base for science, mathematics, and technology literacy for successful participation in society, continuing education, and expansion of the STEM workforce. AMSTI-USA works with six school districts in our five-county service area.  
  The initiative provides three basic services: professional development, equipment and materials, and on-site support. Schools become official AMSTI Schools by sending all of their math and science teachers, and administrators to two week Summer Institutes for two summers. At the Summer Institutes teachers receive grade and subject specific professional development that is highly applicable to their own classrooms. Instruction is delivered at the Summer Institutes by "master" teachers who have been certified as AMSTI trainers after successfully completing AMSTI trainer workshops.
