STEM Hall of Fame

The Robotics Education & Competition (REC) Foundation established its STEM Hall of Fame to recognize and honor the exceptional accomplishments of individuals and teams who come together to support student engagement and achievement in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The STEM Hall of Fame features seven areas in which we pay tribute to different aspects of STEM education, professions, and support: Teacher of the Year, Mentor of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Team Excellence, Partner of the Year, STEM Hero, and World Champions. Each inductee has demonstrated the highest level of commitment, passion, achievement, and impact on STEM education, aiding the development of the next generation of scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians. We hope that by recognizing the accomplishments of these outstanding individuals, we will highlight shared success, creative efforts, best practices, and role models. By celebrating members of the STEM Hall of Fame we hope to inspire and motivate the thousands of young people engaged in the REC Foundation's robotics programs.
