Provided they have shown ongoing commitment to the Mission of the RCW Eureka! Trust and are teaching at a school, university or polytech in New Zealand they are eligible for the Eureka! STEM Teacher Award.
The Eureka! Trust wants to acknowledge the great contribution teachers make to our programme which (as our Mission Statement says) seeks "to identify and foster young leaders who, through their knowledge of science, technology, engineering or mathematics, their entrepreneurial vision and persuasive communication skills, will bring about the vision of New Zealand as foreseen by Sir Paul Callaghan."
So, to put our money where our mouth is, we have decided to award two special Awards each year to the two teachers who have done the best job in the minds of the people who nominate them in helping us achieve our vision.
We will put up a nomination form shortly.
Nominations close on 31 July.
