WELCOME TO THE
BERRIEN COUNTY MATHEMATICS & SCIENCE CENTER
The Berrien County Mathematics and Science Center serves a 675 square-mile area in Southwestern Michigan along 50 miles of Lake Michigan's white sand beach. The mission of the Berrien County Mathematics and Science Center is to enhance the quality of mathematics and science education for all area students.
Berrien County Math & Science Center seniors display the results of their research experiences as part of the 2012 BEST Early Research Symposium.
Since 1991, some of the area's highest-potential high school students have attended Berrien County Mathematics and Science Center for challenge and inspiration in mathematics, science, and technology. Up to 30 students per grade in grades 9-12 travel to the campus of Andrews University in Berrien Springs for half of each school day to take accelerated mathematics, science, and technology classes. Students receive high school and optional college credit for these courses, taught by Andrews University faculty.
The Center along with the Berrien RESA Curriculum/Instruction , Instructional Technology , and Professional Development departments, provide professional and student opportunities in mathematics, science and technology. The Center provides services to local school districts in the areas of professional development, curriculum support, student services, leadership, community involvement, and resource materials.
The Center is one of 33 regional centers in the Michigan Mathematics and Science Center Network. The Network supports the delivery of high quality mathematics and science education for all students in Michigan. The Center is also a member of the National Consortium of Specilized Secondary Schools for Mathematics, Science and Technology (NCSSSMST). The Berrien County Mathematics and Science Center's service area includes schools in Berrien and Cass counties.
