Announcing the 2015 Educator Awards Winners!

By honoring educators who are hard at work in our 6 to 12 grade classrooms, the engineering profession wants to show its appreciation and respect for the teachers who are helping students discover engineering.

Unique to this program, engineers and engineering students are part of the nomination process. This community recognizes that educators deserve support and respect when it comes to advancing student learning.

The DiscoverE Educator Awards are sponsored by Bechtel, ExxonMobil Corporation, 3M, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Shell Oil Corporation, and the United Engineering Foundation (UEF).
