In July 2016, The Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) announced the winners of the inaugural THINK IT UP Innovation Awards, selecting eight teams of students and teachers, among thousands of submissions, who exemplify the great work happening in America’s classrooms. STEM School and Academy’s team, Band Together was one of the eight innovation winners, receiving $5,000 in DonorsChoose.org funding credits to advance their outstanding work in the classroom.
Lisa Paulsen, CEO and President of the Entertainment Industry Foundation said, "These teams remind us of what we can accomplish when we support and celebrate the tremendous effort of America's schools and teachers. There's no spotlight bright enough for the inventive, inspiring work they do every day."
We are proud to be education innovators!
