S.T.E.M. Excellence in Teaching Awards 2021

The New Hampshire Society of Professional Engineers (NHSPE) has joined forces with other engineering societies, and the University of New Hampshire to recognize deserving teachers at the elementary, middle and high school levels who are promoting S.T.E.M. curriculum in the classroom. This year marked the 15th consecutive year of this exciting program, and we have had the pleasure of honoring many outstanding teachers throughout New Hampshire. These great teachers are the motivators and educators for our next generations of engineers, inventors, mathematicians, and scientists.

This year's winners were:

S.T.E.M. Excellence in Teaching Awards 2020

Mr. Frank Xydias

The 2020 winner, from the high school level, was Mr. Frank Xydias, of the Milford Applied Technology Center in Milford. Mr. Xydias received a plaque honoring his achievement along with a stipend check. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, we were not able to honor Mr. Xydias at a formal ceremony prior to the end of the school year. We extend our extreme appreciation to Frank and to the work he does with youth in the Milford area.
