Foundations Recognized for their Support of SAMM 

 Science and Math on the Move

It is one of the most enduring community-based science and math collaborations in the nation.      

In the early 1990's, Ambassador W.R. Timken, Jr. suggested that a commonly held inventory of high tech science equipment might be transported from district to district as needed, enabling schools to have access to technology they might not individually afford.      

 

The result was the Science and Math on the Move (SAMM), launched in 1995 with the help of the Timken Foundation. Since that time, the program has been supported by the National Science Foundation, Stark County Educational Service Center (SCESC), the Stark Education Partnership, districts, area colleges and local foundations.    

   

Tuesday SCESC recognized the Paul and Carol David, Deuble, H.W. Hoover, Hoover, Fred F. Silk, Stark Community, and Timken Foundations for their support over the last five years.

 

In part, that support helped SAMM accommodate dramatic increases in dual credit and Advanced Placement (AP) science and math courses requiring its equipment. Last year, there were 587 teacher requests that resulted in 21,977 student uses of 907 pieces of SAMM equipment.
