UH System Ethnomathematics and STEM Institute

In an effort to address issues of equitable and quality education, culturally responsive science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) pedagogy is explored across the State of Hawai'i and Pacific based on the Mathematics Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). We strive to advance a coordinated effort focused on ethnomathematics and the needs of culturally diverse learners, with the aim of informing research and deepening practice within and outside of the classroom. The Ethnomathematics and STEM Institute brings together research institutions and community-based organizations including the University of Hawai'i System, Hawai'i State Department of Education, Pacific American Foundation, Pacific Resources for Education and Learning, Hawai'i P-20 Partnerships for Education, and the Polynesian Voyaging Society to support professional development for P-20 STEM educators and students.
