Study of the theory, experimentation, and engineering that form the basis for the design and use of computers; creative and innovative processes of assigning a code for purposes of classification and identification; processes that lead from an original formulation of a computing problem to usable computer programs.
For more than 35 years, the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) have rewarded and inspired teachers across the country. PAEMST, which have honored more than 5,000 teachers, are the highest honors bestowed by the United States government specifically for K–12 science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and/or computer science teaching. Awardees receive a trip to Washington, DC; a $10,000 award; and opportunities to network with colleagues from across the nation. Nominate a teacher or apply today at www.paemst.org.
The National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) Aspirations in Computing Educator Award (AiC Educator Award) identifies exemplary formal and informal educators who play a pivotal role in encouraging ninth- through twelfth-grade students who self-identify as female, genderqueer, or nonbinary to explore their interests in computing and technology.

This blog is the second in a series on the importance of mentoring girls and young women through a compassionate “lean-in” culture of practice. Check out the first post “Mentoring Girls and Young Women Through a Compassionate ‘Lean-In’ Culture of Practice.” This post will provide just-in-time resources to help you model how to provide access and equity to robust science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) resources for ALL students, and how to infuse hands-on STEM learning experiences throughout your subject areas and all K–12 grade-level bands.
