STEM Innovation Awards

The Silicon Valley Education Foundation’s STEM Innovation Awards are awarded in recognition of pioneering people and programs in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math education at our annual Pioneers & Purpose celebration for education.  Four honorees are awarded in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math for programs and practices that set a new benchmark for innovation in STEM. Good ideas that have not yet been tested may be worthy but, without evidence of results, will not be eligible for an award.
