BRANSON, Mo. – Julie Bauman of the SciTech STEM Discovery Academy was awarded the STEM Champion Award during the STEM Expo in Branson, Mo. on October 8, 2013. The STEM Champion Awards program honors public and private elementary, middle and high school teachers and teacher educators that have served as a champion for integrated STEM education in their schools and communities.

Bauman is the head of the SciTech Discover Academy in Aurora, Illinois, which provides 40 preschool and kindergarten children in the SciTech Museum and aims to incorporate STEM disciplines in creative and age-appropriate activities while focusing on development and growth of the whole child. She has worked in education for more than 15 years.

The STEM Champion Awards serve as a standard of excellence for individuals who promote integrated science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. Each year, the International STEM Education Association (ISEA) seeks out individuals who have implemented STEM program, provided professional development, encouraged others and have been instrumental in supporting integrated STEM education.

The STEM Champions Awards are presented every year at the ISEA annual conference.
