STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education. STEM Education is a very hands on curriculum that encourages learning through problem solving, discovering, and exploring.
CITGO Petroleum Corporation is dedicated to fueling education. They have even launched a website and program with the goal of celebrating STEM Education, as well as celebrating imagination and innovation in classrooms across America.
CITGO is encouraging teachers to enter the CITGO Fueling Education Sweepstakes. Entering is easy, but first, let's talk about the GREAT prizes that you could win!!!
For the GRAND PRIZE, renowned STEM educator, Steve Spangler, could you visit your school! How cool would that be?! Nine other classrooms will have the opportunity to attend one of Steve Spanglers' "Science in the Rockies" workshops. And, 90 teachers (yes, 90!!!) could win a $1,000 National School Supply Voucher for their classrooms! Now that's a lot of school supplies!! :)
To enter, simply tell CITGO how your students use STEM learning to boost their creative and critical thinking skills. I told you it was easy! :)
BONUS: Be one of the first teachers to enter and you will win a *FREE* STEM toolkit (for grades K-2, 3-5 or 6-8) with loads of fun STEM "Imagination Lab" experiments, a free classroom poster and much more. (Available while supplies last.).
That's not all! Teachers can also download individual STEM content for use in their classrooms!
So, what are you waiting for?!
