In a world increasingly shaped by science and technology, STEM education has never been more critical. If America is to meet the challenges of the 21st century, we must STEMtheGAP™ in science, technology, engineering, and mathematical education.

Who better to turn to for new ideas than you—the teachers in America’s classrooms?

Share your best ideas for improving STEM education below, and you have the chance to receive a $1,000 grant for your students.

An independent panel of scientists and educators from The Center for Science Teaching and Learning of Rockville Centre, NY, will review every submission.

The Fall Teacher Challenge is now closed. Thank you for your submissions!

Special thanks to the Center for Science Teaching and Learning who will review all entries.
