SSMA has been in existence, under various names, since 1901. Its current mission is to be “a sounding board and enabler for all organizations seeking to promote, improve, and advance school science and mathematics and the integration of science, mathematics, and all STEM fields.” Its goals are to support the community of teachers, researchers, and practitioners, advance knowledge through research in STEM education, make scholarly research available to practitioners, and influence STEM education policy (https://www.ssma.org/).
