The Alabama Math, Science, and Technology Initiative, commonly referred to as AMSTI, is the Alabama Department of Education’s initiative to improve STEM teaching statewide, including improvements in the individual, as well as the integrated, STEM subjects. Its mission is to support Alabama educators and students in learning STEM through doing STEM.

AMSTI has three basic services: professional learning, resources, and onsite support. “AMSTI for All” describes the work of an AMSTI site in providing a menu of services framework to district leaders to discuss how LEA needs may be met by AMSTI's three basic services: professional learning, instructional materials, and educator support. Teachers are eligible for initiative training once they complete Foundational Training in the appropriate subject area. Teachers who attend training receive the designated resources and support needed for implementation. As funding allows, AMSTI services will be provided to both individuals and schools based on the tiered models of support described in math, science, digital literacy and computer science.
