For nearly 40 years, the Future of Education Technology Conference has gathered the most dynamic and creative education professionals from around the world for an intensive, highly collaborative exploration of new technologies, best practices and pressing issues. Its impact has been felt by thousands of districts, schools, educators — and ultimately students.
Ms. Weeks, Principal at Herbert Mills STEM Elementary School and her team put together a short video application for consideration for the FETC 2019 STEM Excellence National Awards. The video highlights the school's outstanding STEM program and how STEM learning is applied every day.The awards recognize excellence and innovation in the field of STEM education with winners selected from each level- elementary, middle and high school.
“Innovative STEM education is one of the drivers in ensuring students are prepared for success in the global economy of today and tomorrow, not just as contributors but as creators,” said Jennifer Womble, program chair of FETC. “Schools that provide high-quality STEM learning opportunities are truly living out the vision of what a 21st century education should be, which is why we seek to highlight some of the nation’s most outstanding programs through the STEM Excellence Awards sponsored by State Farm. We look forward to reviewing the nominations and learning about the wonderful programs schools are providing for students.”
This is a huge honor to be recognized, and we wish Herbert Mills the best of luck as winners are announced at the end of January 2019 in Orlando, Florida.
