Since 2014, WNY STEM Hub and Siemens have recognized individual schools and school districts in our 5-county region for their good work dedicated to STEM learning.

Emerging STEM School Systems – These school systems are validated by WNY STEM Hub for beginning to dedicate resources and effort to STEM education for students.  They are at the early stages of a process that can lead them to becoming an Accomplished STEM school system.

Schools on the Move – This competitive recognition is open to any school as it embarks on transformational changes in STEM learning across three levels of achievement – EmergingEngaged, and Accomplished.  The NYS STEM Learning Rubric is the framework in documenting their efforts to meet significant benchmarks.

Sustainability Education – This competitive recognition is open to any P-12 and undergraduate education school, program, or club.  The recipient will exemplify components of quality STEM learning in meaningful Sustainability Education.

STEM Teacher Leaders – Outstanding educators will be recognized for their extraordinary effort as an advocate and leader in STEM learning.

Thank you to our 2018 host, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, and to Siemens, our long-standing sponsor.
