STEM Academy at Bartlett Once Again Recognized as the Top STEM Middle School Program in the Nation

Published on: 1/30/2019

The STEM Academy at Bartlett has once again been recognized by the Future of Education Technology Conference as having the number one middle school STEM program in the United States.  The school was named one of the top three finalists for the FETC STEM Excellence Award last month and the winner was announced this morning at the conference in Orlando, Florida.

The FETC STEM Excellence Awards recognize excellence and innovation in the field of STEM education at the primary, middle and high school levels.  The finalists were determined by the FETC STEM Advisory Committee, consisting of a seven-member panel of high-ranking educational professionals from across the country.  The panel evaluated hundreds of applications before selecting three finalists and eventual winner, in each age level.

STEM Excellence Awards applications are evaluated based on the use of Interdisciplinary Curriculum, Collaboration, Design, Problem Solving and the STEM Experiences offered.  This is the second time the STEM Academy has been named tops in the nation.  The school previously won the STEM Excellence award in 2016.
