Celebrating Excellence in Education

In Wendy Hawkins’ blog “Spring, Science, Hope, Math” she talked about why we created and continue to invest in the Intel Schools of Distinction program. Since that post in April, we have had the pleasure of announcing six outstanding schools as this year’s winners with one of them achieving the distinction of being a “Star Innovator”. You can read more about the winning schools and the Intel Schools of Distinction program here. We have invited the schools to share their experiences, how they go about their business, what steps they have taken to create an environment where teachers are excited to teach and the students are equally excited to learn math and science. Our hope is that by sharing these experiences and achievements, we can inspire other schools and educators to emulate the success of these winners. So watch this space to hear from the schools and please share your thoughts on this topic as well.

I would like to congratulate each one of the six winning schools with a special applaud to our Star Innovator, Sojourner School of Oregon. Click on the school name below to watch their inspiring video profiles:
