Recognition Program: School and Teacher Award Application
The NYS STEM Quality Learning Rubric guides this school-level recognition program which WNY STEM Hub launched in 2015. Recognized schools are validated as they embark on transformational changes in STEM learning. The recognition also encourages sharing and scaling up by example as it identifies individual schools that have demonstrated marked progress from Emerging to Engaged or Accomplished Levels for these components of quality STEM learning:
- STEM integration;
- Connections to non-STEM disciplines;
- Use of project-based learning;
- Exposure to STEM careers;
- Use of the engineering design process; and
- Technology integration
Public, private, charter, and parochial P-12 schools in WNY are eligible. Applicants must be able to demonstrate that the school has moved beyond an emerging level across most NYS STEM Quality Learning components. Schools within a current WNY STEM Hub recognized Emerging STEM School System are automatically eligible.
