Your social status doesn't change when you're in KAMSC, but at least there's a higher percentage of nerds just like you.

Welcome to KAMSC Online

Welcome to KAMSConline, the Kalamazoo Area Mathematics and Science Center's online web community. If you have visited before, please login now to access your new capability.

We have many plans for future development of our web presence. Please bear with us as we implement our upgrades.

The Kalamazoo Area Mathematics and Science Center is a regional enrichment center serving both public and private school districts in the counties of Kalamazoo and St. Joseph.
 
Our onsite program serves students residing in the Kalamazoo Regional Educational Service Agency (KRESA) service area. We also provide professional learning and outreach programs to fulfill our primary mission of enriching the quality of mathematics and science education for all students in Kalamazoo and St. Joseph Counties.

KAMSC is a member of the Michigan Math and Science Centers Network and a founding member of the National Consortium of Secondary STEM Schools.  The Michigan Math and Science Centers Network is a statewide collaboration of 33 STEM Centers.  The Network is a core element of the system of support for K-12 STEM education in Michigan.  We Provide high quality STEM opportunities that can reach every child in our state either through direct student services or by providing teacher professional learning.

Our membership includes Directors with expertise in every facet of STEM and STEM education.  Therefore, the Network is both a catalyst and resource for educational innovation.  State and national initiatives can be quickly mobilized throughout Michigan because of the strong working relationships that individual Centers maintain with their constituent schools, teachers and students.  Center Directors also nurture and sustain collaborations between business and industry partners and their local stakeholders.
