The STEM Academy at Bartlett Middle School has been recognized by the Future of Education Technology Conference as having the top middle school STEM program in the nation. The school was one of the top three finalists for the FETC STEM Excellence Award which was announced on January 30th, 2019.
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 group evaluated hundreds of applications before selecting three finalists, in each age level.
The FETC STEM Excellence Awards recognize excellence and innovation in the field of STEM education at the primary, middle and high school levels, with winners selected from each level. STEM Excellence Awards applications are evaluated based on the use of Interdisciplinary Curriculum, Collaboration, Design, Problem Solving and the STEM Experiences offered.
