C.A. Johnson High School math teacher Dr. Mario Ramon has been selected for the Society for Science’s High School Research Teachers Conference. The Society for Science is dedicated to “expanding scientific literacy, access to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education and scientific research.”
The all-expenses-paid conference will be held September 29-October 1 in Washington, D.C. The conference brings together research teachers from across the U.S. to share their best practices, troubleshoot challenges and learn more about the society. It will cover topics such as tools and strategies for managing student research projects and supporting students underrepresented in STEM.
“Attending a national conference in STEM research holds immense significance for me. This event not only offers a platform for engaging with the latest advancement in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics but also provides a unique opportunity to bridge the gap between cutting-edge research and classroom application. This conference will help me grow professionally, equipping me with tools and inspiration to empower my students with a true appreciation for the wonders of STEM and its boundless potential,” said Dr. Ramon.
Dr. Ramon is among the 175 teachers who were selected via lottery to participate in the conference. Teachers are eligible for the lottery if they teach a STEM course to students in at least one high school grade or serve in another role that allows the promotion of STEM to high school students. Preference is given to those who have not attended previous conferences and those who are the first educator from their school to attend.
