After experiencing the Siemens STEM Institute as a  2010 inaugural STEM Fellow, I was invited back in 2011 to help as a  member of the Siemens STEM Team,  representing Mathematics – STEM integration connection.  Jannita Damian was deemed the lead organizer, adding some action packed exclusive scheduling for the 2011 Fellows, including White House visits, behind the scenes Smithsonian Museum experiences, as well as inspirational discussions with Siemens Executives and Discovery Channel  Celebrities sharing sneak peaks.

Siemens Fellows were given numerous perspectives and opportunities through a multitude of great DEN Team members.  Patti Duncan was dynamic in her way to show multiple perspectives of STEM initiatives, big and small. Lance RougeuxBrad Fountain,  Mike BryantMike Gorman, another 2010 Fellow, Pat Engleman and I worked with Jannita to create a professional development experience that would meet all fellows’ desires.  This line up of passionate educators carries a lot of energy!  Then Siemens and Discovery Education  top it off with leading 21st Century Educators like Dr. Lodge McCammon to inspire 21st C. STEM even more!  The  STEMthusiasm of our group is Very Contagious!
