About this Awards Program
PASCO has partnered with the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) to reward selected K-12 STEM educators who have created and are utilizing modern and effective STEM curriculum in the classroom.
A total of 5 awardees will be selected annually with the breakdown of recipients as follows:

Excellence in STEM education is the overall criterion for the selection of recipients. The judging committee is a panel of experts selected by NSTA. Specifically this committee will be looking for entries to:
- Implement innovative inquiry-based, technology infused STEM programs
- Address a real-world application or problem and challenge students to use science, technology, engineering and math to solve it
- Incorporate sensor-based data collection and visualization techniques
- Demonstrate the ability to teach various levels of students, including those that might be underrepresented in science, at risk or have differing abilities
- Correspond to National Science Education Standards
