About

We celebrated the national impact of UTeach programs and STEM teachers with a yearlong celebration!

UTeach raised awareness of the importance of high-quality secondary STEM education with a variety of celebratory activities during 2016–2017.

  • UTeach students across the nation were invited to participate in contests.
  • We profiled UTeach alumni successes in a series of monthly articles. Our alumni do some amazing things!
  • UTeach programs collected videos of their faculty, students, and alumni telling us why they teach. We also collected videos of well-known people wishing UTeach a happy birthday. We'll collect these clips and compile them into celebratory videos that we'll release in Spring 2017. #WhyITeach
  • During National Teacher Appreciation Week (May 1–5, 2017), UTeach programs across the country hosted local celebrities and civic leaders participating in STEM lessons in local schools
  • We'll be getting the word out via news and social media all year! #UTeach20

THANK YOU!

Thank you very much to all the faculty and staff from UTeach programs across the country who helped us plan the anniversary activities.
