Educators: The Power is in Your Hands
With the academic year in full swing, PBS39 is encouraging local educators to provide their students with hands-on learning with the Empowering Educators program. Sponsored by PPL Corporation, the program is designed to bring science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to life in the community.
Empowering Educators will feature teacher-led student teams who will identify STEM-related needs in their communities. Each team will implement a project that will have a positive impact on its selected need.
PBS39 will select six winning teams. Each winning team will be awarded $1,000 during a ceremony at the PPL Public Media Center in early November, which will be used to bring their projects to fruition. Each team will be judged on its project proposal, its community need, and potential overall impact.
Submissions are due by Oct. 30, 2015. Full contest rules and the contest application can be found at this link.
