The Science Teacher and Researcher (STAR) program addresses the science and mathematics teacher recruitment and retention crisis by creating a prestigious dual "teacher-researcher" career path. Founded and implemented in 2007 by the Cal Poly Center for Excellence in Science and Mathematics Education (CESaME) on behalf of the California State University (CSU) system, STAR provides cutting edge research experiences and career development for pre-service and early career teachers during early critical years. By anchoring pre-service teachers in the scientific research community, they will come to better understand what it means to be a researcher as well as an effective teacher of science or mathematics.
