The wonderful people at Rayovac recently approached us and asked for our help in celebrating Teacher Appreciation week (May 2 – 6). They are recognizing inspirational teachers by offering three all-expense paid trips to attend Science in the Rockies in Denver, Colorado July 6-8, 2011.
Science in the Rockies is an intensive three-day hands-on science training for teachers who want to integrate more science into their classrooms and make it more meaningful and fun for their students.
“There are so many amazing educators that bring inspiration, guidance, encouragement and fun to the classroom,” said Kent Klagos, Division Vice President, Rayovac. “Through the Teachers Bring Science to Life Contest, we hope to recognize a few of the many outstanding teachers as well as give them an amazing science experience they can bring back and share with their students.”
Do you know a K-6 teacher that brings learning to life and inspires kids to want to learn in the classroom? Rayovac is now accepting nominations on their website rayovac.com/science until 11:59 p.m. on May 16, 2011. If you would like to recognize a teacher, click over to the Rayovac site, complete the entry form and submit an essay up to 300 words explaining how the teacher inspires students and brings learning to life. Teachers who want to learn great classroom techniques and engaging experiments to captivate their students can even nominate themselves.
The individuals whose nominating essays win for the three lucky teachers will also receive one of three $100 gift cards from a major retailer.
We want to extend a special thank you to the people at Rayovac for understanding and acknowledging how important science education is in our children’s lives.
