On July 28, 29, and 30, for the third consecutive year, a group of Connecticut’s science and math teachers are attending an innovative Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Institute at Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU).

This Institute, which is a partnership between Connecticut’s manufacturing industry sector and academia, is focused on the engineering and technology aspects of STEM, areas where traditional preparation of science and math teachers has been less substantive.

Peter Dimoulas, celebrated instructor, graduate of the Institute, and advocate for the implementation of cutting-edge STEM opportunities and programs at Career High School in New Haven, will be recognized for his special achievements. He has worked tirelessly to help students tap their creative energies and to help them gain a fresh perspective on today’s fast-paced high-tech industries that draw on STEM educational disciplines.
