accepted the award on behalf of the school
Each year, the FETC brings together over 9,000 leaders in the fields of education and technology and recognizes the top three schools nationwide that demonstrate excellence and innovation in the field of STEM education at the primary, middle and high school levels. Evergreen took second place honors in the primary school category.
STEM education is an integrated approach to teaching four distinct areas: science, technology, engineering and mathematics. To qualify for the award, schools were evaluated based on their use of interdisciplinary curriculum, collaboration, design, problem solving, as well as their STEM offerings.
Evergreen teachers Stasia Smith and Kathleen Hill accepted the award on behalf of the school. They also presented during a conference breakout session, sharing ideas and resources to help other educators integrate STEM education into their elementary school programs.
