• STEM Awards Ceremony

    Anne Arundel County Public Schools honors STEM Excellence annually through the STEM Students of Excellence awards process. STEM teachers at each high school choose one graduating senior from their school who shows interest, passion, dedication, and academic excellence in the STEM discipline areas.  In turn, each STEM senior student awardee selects and honors a preK-12 teacher who inspired them along their STEM learning journey in AACPS.
