Da Vinci Science Center STEAM Educator Awards

Previously known as the Hall of Fame Educator Excellence Awards

Da Vinci Science Center is looking for three K-12 educators who go above and beyond to engage students in high-quality, innovative STEAM projects that integrate subjects and connect the classroom to the real world.  Award recipients will receive a $1,000 cash grant for their school to invest in STEAM education supplies or programs.

Both early-career and more experienced educators will be considered, but nominees should have at least 2 years of teaching experience. Nominees will be asked to submit an essay that describes their approach to STEAM teaching and learning and gives specific examples of student work in class and/or after-school.

The deadline to nominate an educator has passed.

Educators who have been nominated should submit their applications by Feb. 28.
