AMSTI is an Alabama Department of Education initiative to improve math and science education across the state. It provides students with well-trained teachers and the equipment, materials, and resources needed for hands-on, activity-based math and science education.
Research indicates that having students actively engaged in hands-on, problem-solving, activities is the best way to foster learning. These experiences help prepare students for success in postsecondary studies and the workforce. All middle schools in the Decatur School System are involved in this program.
