NCSSS, the National Consortium of Secondary STEM Schools, is pleased to announce it is partnering with the Society of American Military Engineers, or SAME. Our partnership with SAME gives NCSSS an additional pipeline of opportunity for the students at member schools.
The Society of American Military Engineers leads collaborative efforts to identify and resolve national security infrastructure-related challenges. Founded in 1920, SAME unites public and private sector individuals and organizations from across the architecture, engineering, construction, environmental and facility management, cyber security, project planning, contracting and acquisition, and related disciplines in support of national security. SAME develops STEM professionals for the nation through STEM outreach activities, Engineering & Construction Camps, scholarships and engagement of College Student Chapters.
"We are very pleased to welcome the Society of American Military Engineers as a partner of the National Consortium of Secondary STEM Schools," said Todd Mann, executive director of NCSSS. "This partnership will help bring innovative, new and bold STEM curriculum into classrooms across the country."
“We are enthusiastic about working closely with NCSSS to widen STEM opportunities and motivation for America’s youth. Our partnership will enable both organizations to contribute to maintaining our nation’s place in the world," said Brig. Gen. Joseph Schroedel, P.E., F.SAME, USA (Ret.), executive director, SAME.
Patrick Lei, a senior at the Massachusetts Academy of Math and Science who lives in Holden, is one of 10 students nationwide selected to compete for $10,000 in the 2017 national Who Wants to Be a Mathematician. The competition takes place Jan. 7 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. (Eastern) in Atlanta at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta, Regency VII.

Patrick was selected for the national Who Wants to Be a Mathematician based on his score on an online qualifying test with questions on algebra, trigonometry, probability, and math history, which was administered by high school math teachers nationwide using Maple TA, a product of Maplesoft.
Patrick's favorite thing about school is the pool tables there. He loves to play pranks on people, and he is the captain of the school’s math team. Last year’s captain finished second nationwide in the national Who Wants to Be a Mathematician.

In an effort to keep you more informed on events happening in STEM education, we are now starting a weekly roundup of news you may have missed during the week in the field.
In a major victory for STEM schools and NCSSS, the U.S. Senate adopted an amendment that included much of NCSSS's recent definition of a STEM school and that facilitates funding for existing STEM schools in addition to new ones.
We are pleased to announce the first submission for the NCSSS Student Research Blog Spotlight:
