Congratulations to Our Spring Scholarship Recipients!

AH0A1701.jpgOur team is always looking for more ways to support elementary science and elementary teachers. We listen closely to teachers, and we hear them express their need for financial support to underwrite the costs of professional development and materials. So we are pleased to invest some of our project funds in a new round of professional development scholarships . . . and today we’re delighted to announce the names of 49 elementary teachers from 21 states who will receive awards!

Each scholarship includes tuition to attend a two-day EiE workshop at the Museum of Science, Boston. Teachers will also receive a complete set of classroom materials: EiE Teacher Guide, a class set of storybooks, and a Materials Kit. 

IMG_5380.jpgApplicants were asked to submit examples of STEM lessons they currently teach, share ideas for integrating engineering with other subjects, and reflect on why engineering is important for elementary students. The selection process also screened for teacher leaders who show strong potential to share what they learn through the scholarship with their colleagues. Competition was fierce, but we narrowed it down to these 49 impressive candidates.

Congratulations to our scholarship winners! We can’t wait to meet you.
