Green Street Academy teacher awarded prestigious Siemens Award
Desmond is one of forty teachers nationwide who will participate in the Siemens Teachers as Researchers fellowship this summer. The fellowship provides middle school and high school STEM teachers the opportunity to engage with top scientists and researchers on short-term research projects about current topics of national interest.
In addition to the research immersion, teachers attend seminars, mini-workshops, tours, and field trips to focus and expand the research experience, and learn how to incorporate research into their classroom.
The award is awarded by the Siemens Foundation, which supports educational initiatives in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in the United States.
