The MAST Institute  takes its mission seriously to create scholarly works in the science and mathematics education areas. Supported by federal research grants, this is a major avenue for allowing the MAST Institute to grow in the future. We have amassed a team of PhD-level researchers who are capable of competing in competitive federal funding programs, as evidenced by large NSF and U.S. Department of Education grants to both Dr. Sexton and Dr. Reinsvold.
