We are excited to announce that nominations for the 2009 Rochester Area Excellence in STEM Teaching Award are now being accepted.
Last year was the first time the RAC Center for Excellence in Math and Science offered the STEM Teaching Award. We received nominations from many outstanding teachers, and in October, we narrowed our search down to three finalists. The Award Winner, Jennie Peck, was announced at the 2008 Collaboration Event.
The purpose of the award is to recognize effective, engaging, and innovative Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) teaching in grades K-12.
To learn more, or to nominate a teacher you know, please visit the Excellence in STEM Teaching web page.
