A user-friendly toolkit
for changing the conversation
around teaching science and math

Get the Facts Out is an NSF funded project to change the conversation around STEM teacher recruitment.

The nation needs more secondary math and science teachers. Research shows that nearly half of STEM majors have an interest in becoming a teacher. The U.S. public has strong perceptions about teaching as a career. Many of these perceptions are not based on fact and are actually misperceptions or myths about the profession.

This toolkit will help you get the facts out.
