Fueling Education Program for K-8 STEM Teachers

Are you a STEM teacher? Do you have a favorite activity or lesson plan for teaching your students specific STEM concepts? If so, I want you to know about this opportunity for you to win classroom supplies or an in-school teacher training session with science guru, Steve Spangler!

Citgo's Fueling Education Program is focused on nurturing children's interest in STEM. The best way they can do that is by supporting creative and ingenious K-8 teachers. They want to know how your students use STEM learning to boost their creative and critical thinking skills.

To enter, K-8 teachers simply visit www.fuelingeducation.com to share their favorite STEM teaching ideas or lesson plans through a brief description, photo, and/or video, for the chance to receive one of the following:
  • 3 Grand-Prize winners will receive an in-school teacher training session led by Spangler, with the opportunity to invite up to 99 other fellow teachers to attend and learn STEM-related topics, lessons and activities to engage their students. Each Grand Prize winner will also receive a voucher to purchase classroom supplies from National School Supply.
  • 9 First-Prize winners will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Spangler’s “Science in the Rockies” seminar, held mid-summer in Denver, to participate in hands-on workshops to further develop the way they teach STEM subjects. In addition, each First Prize winner will receive a voucher to purchase classroom supplies from National School Supply.
  • 90 Second-Prize winners will receive a voucher to purchase classroom supplies from National School Supply.
According to the website, when you enter the contest, you will receive a STEM education packet with lesson plans and posters (while supplies last).

“At its very core, STEM is really about our ability as educators to build connections and create experiences that inspire our students to think differently as they imagine their unlimited potential as future scientists and engineers,” says Spangler. I totally agree!

I'd really love to see some Latino or Bilingual Ed teachers win!
