BOCES 4 Science Program Wins STEM Awards

The BOCES 4 Science program received the Community Support STEM Innovation Award in recognition of exemplary programs in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math from the Finger Lakes STEM Hub  at an award ceremony at the Rochester Museum and Science Center. This is the first award BOCES 4 Science has won from the Fingers Lakes STEM Hub. The NYS STEM Quality Learning Rubric is used to determine the winning program to celebrate excellence in STEM Education.

BOCES 4 Science is a collaborative effort between the BOCES in the Mid-Western New York State region. It is a science program service developed through a partnership between Monroe 2-Orleans BOCES, Monroe #1 BOCES, Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES, and the Genesee Valley Education Partnership BOCES.

Mary Thomas, science teacher and acting director, of the BOCES 2 Elementary Science Program (ESP) said, “It is so gratifying to have won this award. Our collaborative group has worked very hard over the last several years to create a new science program of which BOCES 4 Science could be proud. These science units go across New York State and provide best practice instruction for K- 5 students. It is quite a feat to have scored well on the NYS STEM Quality Rubric and our whole team feels tremendously honored.”
