Since its inception in 1986, members of the International Consortium for Research in Science and Mathematics Education have shared their work in the following venues: Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago (1986); San José, Costa Rica (1987); Merída, México (1991); San Juan, Puerto Rico (1992); Concepción, Chile (1994); Belize City, Belize (1996); Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago (1998); San José, Costa Rica (2000); Panamá City, Panamá (2002); Concepción, Chile (2004); and Nassau, The Bahamas (2006).
The ICRSME focuses on programs for collaborative research, curriculum development, instructional improvement, academic exchange, teacher education and professional development, innovation initiatives, and shared resource opportunities. The benefits to be gained include multicultural perspectives, sharing of resources, the unification of purposes and efforts toward improving academic programs, and the fostering of peaceful relationships among the peoples of the participating countries. The ICRSME is the result of the efforts of individuals who have similar academic interests and visions for the future. The current foundation and basis for future activity lies in the dedication that these individuals have toward the improvement of educational opportunities in their own and neighboring countries.
