As teachers, we all know the importance of STEM Education (the integration of science, technology, engineering, and math). It is vital to the future of our students and our country and shapes our everyday experiences.
STEM is our students' future.
We play a BIG part in integrating STEM properly throughout our curriculum. For most of us, this is a very challenging and daunting task and is something we must take the time to learn about.
In addition to taking the time to educate ourselves on STEM, we also need to come up with ways to afford all of the wonderful activities we want to do with our students.
CITGO Petroleum Corporation is dedicated to fueling education, and has launched a website and program, with the goal of celebrating STEM education, and encouraging and celebrating imagination and innovation in classrooms across America.
CITGO is encouraging teachers to enter the CITGO Fueling Education Sweepstakes, which is a promotion they are running, in partnership with National School Supply, We Are Teachers, and renowned STEM educator, Steve Spangler. This is a GREAT opportunity for teachers to win amazing prizes!
Steve Spangler could visit your school (grand prize), or your students could have the opportunity to attend one of his "Science in the Rockies" workshops (9 prizes), or your classroom could win a $1,000 National School Supply Voucher (90 prizes).
Are you proud of how your students use STEM learning to boost their creative and critical thinking skills? If so, then you can be a BIG winner! Just click on over to the sweepstakes here and enter to win.
Don't delay, though! If you are one of the first few teachers to enter, you will receive a free STEM toolkit with loads of fun STEM "Imagination Lab" experiments, a free poster, and much more. These goodies are available while supplies last.
While you're checking out the sweepstakes, you can also download some STEM content to use in your classroom now.
