Ten East Bay schools have received $25,000 each to bolster Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs through the “Chevron Classroom Challenge” contest.
Five Contra Costa County and five Alameda County winners were selected from more than 300 projects submitted.
Contra Costa County winners are: Debra Arthur, Ygnacio Valley High School, in the Mt. Diablo district; Martha Kessler, Indian Valley Elementary in the Walnut Creek School Distric; Catherine Vanier, Lovonya De Jean Middle School, in the West Contra Costa district; and Liz Ritchie of Deer Valley High School and Michelle Flowers of Park Middle School — both in the Antioch school district.
Alameda County winners are: Christie Carnahan, of Valley View Elementary School in the Pleasanton school district; and Oakland district teachers Devon McCrory of the Ascend School, Emily Greene of Thurgood Marshall Elementary, Christine Tenorio of the E. C. Reems Academy of Technology & Art, and Aaron Vanderwerff of the Lighthouse Community Charter School.
I’ll be writing more about the winners soon.
If you’re an educator, how do you teach about science, technology, engineering and math?
