Today on Cause Talk Radio, Megan and Joe talk to Steve Spangler — America’s Science Teacher — about Fueling Education, a CITGO program in partnership with National School Supply, We Are Teachers, and Steve Spangler that offers educators a chance to win up to $5,000 in school supplies as well as STEM-teaching workshops.

On the show, Megan, Steve and Joe discuss:

  • How Steve got involved with CITGO’s Fueling Education program. The focus is on professional development of teachers to make science fun (again!) for them and their students.
  • How most STEM education programs focus on students when teachers deserve as much or more attention!
  • The importance of STEM to CITGO – who needs a workforce of scientists and engineers.
  • How Fueling Education gives teachers what they want and need: time to learn, develop and recharge their love for teaching.
  • How other businesses (e.g. Pizza Hut, H&R Block) launch and use educational training in the classroom and how it could be enhanced with professional development for teachers.
  • How the Fueling Education program builds a connection between teachers and CITGO scientists – and Steve is the “science communicator” between the two.
  • The business benefit of Fueling Education to CITGO. Is CITGO teaching and grooming tomorrow’s scientists and engineers?
