(Savannah, GA)- The STEM Academy at Bartlett is among nation’s top 10 programs. The school has been selected as a finalist for a STEM Excellence Award from the Future of Education Technology Conference.
The FETC STEM Advisory Board evaluated more than a hundred applications for the finalist position.
The STEM Academy at Bartlett earlier this year was the first middle school in the state of Georgia to receive schoolwide STEM certification.
STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines – science, technology, engineering and mathematics – in an interdisciplinary and applied approach.
The FETC STEM Excellence Awards recognize excellence and innovation in the field of STEM education at the primary, middle and high school levels. STEM Excellence Awards applications are evaluated based on the use of Interdisciplinary Curriculum, Collaboration, Design, Problem Solving and the STEM Experiences offered.
