Governor Markell says it's crucial that we train the workforce of the future in STEM...science, technology, engineering, and math.

In his weekly address, Markell says Delaware's students are primed and ready for the challenge.

"Our young people have the talent to make Delaware a hub for growing industries that require expertise in these STEM subjects," Markell said. "But we will only take advantage of their potential if we have great STEM teachers in our classrooms."

Markell is recognizing those teachers with the STEM Council’s inaugural Educator Awards.

"These awards will be given to Delaware teachers who demonstrate innovation and excellence in STEM through teaching, academic collaboration, and student engagement," Markell said. "Through the generous financial support of Ashland, the STEM Council will select two recipients of $7,500 cash awards."

Markell says picking the winners will be tough, as the state has many talented STEM teachers.
