Thank you for nominating a teacher to be one of the first Southwest Central Indiana STEM Fellows! STEM Fellows will be expected to serve as leaders and STEM experts who will provide support to colleagues, model STEM lessons, participate in their own learning through provided professional development, design and complete a community project, and be part of a regional STEM teacher leader network. Fellows are expected to commit to being at the same school for two years, to serve as a STEMbassador to peers in the second year, and to attend all professional development.
