COLUMBUS, Ohio - Youngstown City Schools' Chaney STEM and 13 teachers were awarded the Ohio Governor's Thomas Edison Award for Excellence in STEM Education for the second year in a row.

The Ohio Academy of Science selected 58 Ohio schools and 420 teachers to receive Governor's Thomas Edison Awards for Excellence in STEM Education for their accomplishments during the 2012-13 school year. Each will receive special Governor's Award certificates.

 Teachers honored at Chaney STEM include:

  • Madonna Barwick
  • Sharon Ragan
  • James Cassidy
  • Melissa Rhode
  • Michael Cracraft
  • Cory Rudibaugh
  • Ben Dooley
  • Carrie Sinkele

 "These awardees are engaged in project-based curricula, the central element of any STEM education program," said Dr. Lynn E. Elfner, the Academy's CEO. "Receiving a Governor's Thomas Edison Award for Excellence sends a clear signal that these schools and teachers value student-originated, inquiry-based science and technology education as envisioned for the Next-Generation Science Education Standards available now," said Dr. Lynn E. Elfner, the Academy's CEO

Thirty professionals broadly representing STEM employers from business and industry, government and academia, evaluated the applications in a blind review process.

STEM Education is both the mastery and integration of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics for all PK-12 students. It incorporates scientific inquiry and technological design through student-focused, project-based curricula to develop skills of communication, teamwork/collaboration, creativity/innovation, critical thinking, and problem solving.
