The New Mexico Academy of Science has been in existence for over 100 years and is an advocate and resource for science and science education in New Mexico.
The Outstanding Science Teacher Award given by the New Mexico Academy of Science honors New Mexico science and math educators. The Academy recognizes educators who provide opportunities for students to succeed in science. The award has been given since 1968 and nominations are open to all preK-12 teachers and all Informal Science educators throughout New Mexico. The award consists of a plaque and a monetary award, both presented at the annual NMAS Meeting/Symposium. The American Chemical Society joins with the Academy in this award and also presents a monetary award to the NMAS winning teachers.
This year, our two amazing awardees are Megan Strain, from Las Cruces and Kerrie Thatcher, from Carlsbad.
