History

T-MAST Genesis

  • The K-8 program has been extremely successful
  • Because of the success of the K-8 program and the good stewardship of the endowment, Lockheed Martin approached UCF about expanding programs to promote excellence in mathematics and science teaching
  • Transition to Mathematics and Science Teaching was designed
  • Orange County Public Schools joined the partnership
  • Toyota USA Foundation funded the first two years of T-MAST
  • The first T-MAST cohort graduated in 2004
