In many cases these individuals connect work with their teams with students’ work in the classroom; in other cases, teachers commit many hours of after-school time with a robotics club or team. In all cases, these inductees are committed to combining the inspiration and excitement of competition with the motivation and preparation of STEM learning.
Teachers in this area of the Hall of Fame not only master their particular academic disciplines, but also model ideal behavior for students in the areas of inquiry, exploration, problem-solving, and co-operative competition.
