The SCIMAST Demonstration Center
Science and mathematics materials - books, periodicals, instructional packages,
films, and other items - are arriving daily at the SCIMAST Demonstration Center.
The collection is part of the SCIMAST project's role as one of 12 regional
demonstration centers linked to the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse (ENC) for
Mathematics and Science Education in Columbus, Ohio. Located on the Ohio State
University campus, the ENC is charged with identifying and collecting items from
across the nation to build a database of instructional materials for mathematics
and science education. Should you know of a locally produced material or program
that seems particularly promising for mathematics or science teachers, the
Clearinghouse would like to hear about it. Call SCIMAST's toll free number
(1-800-201-7435) to obtain a Clearinghouse submission form.
The SCIMAST center will be linked to the ENC database as well as providing access
to instructional software, multimedia materials and online information at its
Austin location. Any of the collection materials can be viewed during resource
center hours (Monday-Friday, 8:00 am-5:00 pm). The collection also includes
references on educational research in science and mathematics, alternative
assessment, and evaluation.
