Justification for the scholarship, tool or equipment must be directly applicable to STEM and provide value to HCPS STEM education. Criteria considered in determining the awards include, but are not limited to: number of students impacted, filling a ‘gap’ in STEM education, and increasing student interest/excitement in STEM.
Awardees are invited to the AFCEA Aberdeen Chapter Luncheon in September 2011.
