2019 Governor's STEM Team - Scholarship Application NOW Available!
INDIANAPOLIS – Gov. Eric. J. Holcomb, Superintendent of Public Instruction Dr. Jennifer McCormick and Treasurer of State Kelly Mitchell invite Hoosier students to apply for the 2019 Governor’s STEM Team (#GovSTEMteam). Gov. Holcomb developed the competition in 2017 to highlight Indiana’s elite high school students for their work in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
“A firm foundation in STEM offers Indiana high school students tremendous career opportunities,” Gov. Holcomb said. “I am proud to celebrate those who demonstrate excellence in science, technology, engineering, and math and look forward to showcasing the talents and achievements of our students.”
The program honors four outstanding high school students for their exemplary performance in one of the STEM subjects. Winning students each receive a $1,000 college scholarship from Indiana’s College Choice 529 Direct Savings plan, administered by Treasurer Mitchell, and letterman jackets identifying them as members of the Governor’s STEM Team.
The submission period for the competition opens today, and applications and nominations may be submitted online at the following link: https://secure.in.gov/apps/govstemawards/. The deadline for nominations is 11:59 p.m. ET on March 31.
“Engaging students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics prepares them for life beyond high school,” said Dr. McCormick. “I am excited for the submissions we will receive and look forward to recognizing our students’ creativity and passion for STEM.”
“It is a joy to team up with the Governor’s office to celebrate the achievements of so many talented Hoosier students,” said Treasurer Mitchell. “We are honored to be able to award them with a CollegeChoice529 scholarship.”
The Governor’s STEM Team builds on Indiana’s Mr. and Ms. Math and Science awards, which were created by Gov. Mitch Daniels in 2008. The Governor’s STEM Team program will honor the top high school students in STEM classes as well as extracurricular activities, work/research projects, leadership roles and community service. The nominations will be reviewed by a panel of STEM experts, including teachers, college and university instructors, and staff from the Indiana Department of Education and the State Board of Education.
Winners will be announced at a Statehouse ceremony in early May.
The KidWind Project is Now Accepting Scholarship Applications for Summer Renewable Energy Training Academy
The REcharge Academy provides educators with the knowledge and resources needed to bring renewable energy concepts to the STEM classroom
(Saint Paul, MN.) February 25, 2019 – The KidWind Project, an international leader in renewable energy education, and WindWinRI are hosting the 12th annual REcharge Academy at the University of Rhode Island’s Coastal Resources Center in Narragansett, RI on July 15-18, 2019. The four-day training, which will focus on wind power and the future of offshore wind, is hosted in partnership with the University of Rhode Island’s Coastal Resources Center and Graduate School of Oceanography, the Guiding Education and Math and Science Network (GEMSnet Program), the North Kingstown Chamber of Commerce, and RealJobsRI.
By providing the context and content needed to teach renewable energy concepts in their classrooms, this intensive training blends lectures on the science behind wind power and the politics, technologies and economics of the offshore wind energy industry with replicable hands-on STEM lessons for K-12 students. As a capstone to the event, the attendees will take a trip to the first offshore wind farm in the United States – the Block Island Wind Farm.
Educators can apply for scholarships generously donated by REcharge Academy sponsors. The Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is sponsoring 12 scholarships for educators in the following 12 states: AK, AZ, CO, ID, IL, KS, MT, NE, NC, PA, SD, and VA. EDP Renewables North America is also sponsoring four scholarships that are available for educators living near one of their U.S. wind farms. Pattern Energy is also sponsoring scholarships. The first- round deadline is March 1, 2019, while the second and third deadlines are April 1, 2019 and May 15, 2019 respectively. To apply, click here.
“Offshore renewable energy is gaining traction in the United States, but there are still many gaps in the general public’s understanding of how this technology works, issues of concern, and the opportunities it provides,” said Michael Arquin, founder of KidWind. “The REcharge Academy is a unique opportunity for educators to explore these concepts in depth, ask hard questions and then share what they have learned with the wider public.”
“As a result of our RealJobsRI Wind Energy grant, the North Kingstown Chamber of Commerce has created a career pathway that includes a certification at the high school level in offshore wind energy,” said Kristin Urbach, executive director of the North Kingstown Chamber of Commerce. “To continue to be on the forefront, we’re delighted to partner with the KidWind Project’s REcharge Academy training for educators nationwide in the state of Rhode Island.”
During the past 11 years, more than 400 educators of all types have attended the REcharge Academies from all over the world that have impacted thousands of students and educators worldwide.

Indiana University Biology Summer Institute
Real World Science is a weeklong summer seminar for 5th-8th grade science teachers that explores key STEM concepts using real-world WWII examples. Twenty-eight teachers from across the country will come to New Orleans to experience hands-on how necessity, knowledge, perseverance and skill lead to inventions, innovation, and careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), just like in World War II.
PROGRAM DATES: July 14 - 20, 2019
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE: The seminar application is open to any 5th-8th grade science teacher (public, public charter, private, and parochial), who will be teaching a science course to students in the same age group in the 2019-2020 school year. Applications will be evaluated through a competitive process that will include information on teaching experience, a short written statement, and two letters of recommendation. Teachers newer to the classroom are encouraged to apply.
