Overkamp named a DoD STEM Ambassador

Heather Overkamp, a science teacher at I.C. Norcom High School, has been named a 2021 Department of Defense (DoD) Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Ambassador.

As an ambassador in the 2021 cohort, Overkamp will be working with other educators across the nation to create and curate remote-learning and digital materials (such as lesson plans and learning activities), guest author blog posts to be featured on the DoD STEM website and present at conferences (possibly at the national level).

According to the DoD, educators who are recognized with the DoD STEM Ambassador award will partner with the Defense Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Education Consortium (DSEC) to advance STEM outreach throughout the 2021-2022 school year. As members of this prestigious cohort, DoD STEM Ambassadors will collaborate to create and curate resources to support STEM educators across the nation in implementing high quality STEM learning for all students.
