Teacher Geek is a recipient of the distinguished Presidential Awardees' Product of Excellence Award. Nominations and awards are facilitated by a committee comprised of recipients of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST). For reference, the PAEMST award is given by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and the National Science Foundation. The PAEMST award is heralded as the highest recognition a K-12 mathematics or science teacher may receive for outstanding teaching in the United States.
The Presidential Awardees’ Product of Excellence Award is the highest award given by SEPA to STEM-related companies. STEM is defined as the integration of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. The award recognizes the critical role played by businesses in facilitating deep learning and critical thinking skills in STEM education. “The products designed by these companies are vital components of instruction in K-12 classrooms. These STEM products help students explore, experiment, and understand concepts at a deeper level," explained Cathy Barthelemy, President of the Society of Elementary Presidential Awardees (SEPA).
