County STEM teachers awarded NMTC scholarships

The NMTC, at its monthly member’s meeting, featuring Dr Pat Baker – ARL, awarded two teachers $500 each, for use in their classrooms to provide materials to support the units they develop in STEM Education. The members applauded this decision and the dedication of these teachers for adding this multi-year program to their already busy schedule.

The program these teachers will be participating in is Hub, Spoke & Capstone: A Towson University Integrated Elementary STEM Program for Harford/Cecil County Elementary Teachers.

These courses broaden teachers’ practical knowledge of teaching engineering, environmental science, and mathematics, exposing them to innovative teaching practices.

Dr. Pamela S. Lottero-Perdue, is the Project Director and the creator of this program: she can be reached at plottero@towson.edu

John Casner, Executive Director NMTC, serves on the steering committee for the project which includes leaders from both Harford and Cecil Counties School Systems
