Graphic saying "Step Up to What We Have to Offer - CMASE, Center for Math and Science Education"

The University of Arkansas Center for Math and Science Education (CMASE) provides quality resources and materials to the home, private and public education community. It is one of 11 mathematics and science centers on university and college campuses around the state.

The Arkansas NASA Educator Resource Center, located within CMASE, is the state's dissemination point for education materials provided by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Its resources and school/classroom presentations are free of charge.

The main objectives of both centers are to provide:

  1. K-16 education outreach to the home, private and public Northwest Arkansas education community
  2. Quality professional development for pre-service and in-service teachers at local, regional, state and national levels
  3. Access points for dissemination of educational materials, resources and information
  4. Links to common education allies throughout the state and nation.
