mission of ehr
National Science FoundationMission of EHR
  • Excellence in U.S science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education at all levels and in all settings (both formal and informal)
  • Development of a diverse and well-prepared workforce of scientists, technicians, engineers, mathematicians and educators
  • A well-informed citizenry that has access to the ideas and tools of science and engineering.
goals of ehr
National Science FoundationGoals of EHR
  • Prepare the next generation of STEM professionals and attract and retain more Americans to STEM careers.
  • Develop a robust research community that can conduct rigorous research and evaluation that will support excellence in STEM education and that integrates research and education.
  • Increase the technological, scientific and quantitative literacy of all Americans so that they can exercise responsible citizenship and live productive lives in an increasingly technological society.
  • Broaden participation (individuals, geographic regions, types of institutions, STEM disciplines) and close achievement gaps in all STEM fields.
