The Exemplary Science Teacher Awards program was started in 1999 by the SCSEA and the Brevard Science Advisory Council to recognize outstanding science teachers in Brevard County. Annually, the SCSEA holds an awards dinner to honor the efforts of eight science teachers from Brevard County who demonstrate best practices in the area of science instruction. It is our way of saying thank you for a job well done. As a community, we send a strong message when we identify and reward those great teachers that educate our children.
Each year, the SCSEA presents the Aspiring Scientist Award to two elementary students whose science fair projects, although not first place winners, showed unusual creativity and scientific thinking. These students are recognized to inspire their continued interest in science.
The SCSEA Speaker Series provides students and the general public with information on timely science-related topics by engaged scientists. The Speaker Series presentation take place approximately four times a year in the early evenings, at various hosting sites around the county. Please check our events calendar for upcoming talks.
