Celebrating Excellence In Science and Math: the Wilhelmina C. Robertson Teaching Award

September 8, 2015

Through the generosity of the Cockrell Foundation, The Houston Museum of Natural Science is proud to offer the Evelyn Frensley Scholarship for Outstanding Achievement in Science or Mathematics.

The deadline for the 2015 Teacher Award has been extended until Friday, September 18, 2015.   

In recognition of the fine educators of Houston, we also offer the Wilhelmina C. Robertson Excellence in Science or Mathematics Teaching Award. This award of $2,000 will go to one K-5th grade science or math teacher, and one 6th-12th grade science or math teacher who demonstrates significant ability and dedication to teaching in either discipline in Harris County.

You may nominate an outstanding teacher by filling out the 2015 Teaching Award Form.

The deadline for all submissions is September 18, 2015.
