The goals of this initiative are to increase student confidence and participation in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) classes. NCTE-IN offers an environment in which students of all levels of ability can meet with mentors and receive the extra attention they need to excel in these courses.

NCTE-IN is a powerful learning community that connects students with disabilities and mentors in a unique way to promote universal learning and accessibility to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) based degrees. NCTE-IN empowers our students with the opportunity to escape from the limitations and boundaries of the traditional classroom. NCTE-IN is a blended learning community that bridges the gap between the classroom and the virtual world to engage students in STEM-based curriculums and resources.
