Professional Learning Opportunities!

The Engineering and Mathematics, Inspiring Thinking and Solutions (EMITS) Project is a Cohort 10 partnership funded by the California Mathematics and Science Partnership (CaMSP) program, which is administered by the California Department of Education’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Office. CaMSP is a federally funded initiative of the US Department of Education's Mathematics and Science Partnership (MSP) Program under Title II of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).

EMITS includes a target of 50 participating mathematics in grades 6 to 12 from five partner districts. The lead school district for this partnership (Lead LEA) is the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE), which is partnering with faculty members from California State University Sacramento (CSUS) Mathematics Project and Engineering Department. An addition to this partnership is representation of the Capital Region Academies for the Next Economy (CRANE) Consortium at SCOE, who will serve as a liaison for the EMITS Core Partnership. The purpose of EMITS is to encourage the real-world application of math and science education through integrating engineering and technological content. With the added benefits of student inquiry, where curiosity turns theoretical concepts into practical reasoning, and engagement turns disconnected memorization into the relevant and robust development of critical thinking.
