Annual competition awards more than $30,000 to area STEM educators for technological enhancements to classrooms

Students using computers in a high tech classroom

About the Contest

Would a classroom outfitted with $25,000 worth of interactive technology give a boost to young students trying to learn math and science in today’s increasingly high tech world? ORAU believes it would. And we’ve put our money where our mouth is.

This belief has become the foundation of the ORAU Extreme Classroom Makeover—a local competition awarding one deserving middle school teacher with a room full of the latest educational technology and a year’s worth of training and support.

To qualify, contestants must

  • teach math or science for 3rd-10th grade
  • work for a public school located within 50 miles of Oak Ridge, Tenn.
  • submit a 3-4 minute video illustrating the need and potential uses of technology in their classrooms
