UTeach 20th Anniversary

UTeach 20th Anniversary
UTeach celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2017, and WVUteach, a replication site at one of 45 Universities nationwide, is going to help celebrate!

To help mark this auspicious  occasion, we will be helping UTeach raise  awareness of the importance of high-quality secondary STEM education with a variety of celebratory activities during 2016–2017:

  • WVUteach students are invited to join UTeach students across the nation by participating in contests to make a video about UTeach and design a UTeach t-shirt.
Bevo and MountaineerUT Austin, where UTeach first began, sent Bevo, the UT Austin mascot, a stuffed longhorn, around to the student organization at every UTeach program. When Bevo arrived at WVU, WVUteach students took a photo with Bevo and the WVU Mountaineer. Click here to see more of Bevo's time at WVU. You can also follow all of Bevo's travels at: #UTeachMascots.
  • We are collecting videos of our faculty and students telling us why they teach:
  • We are collecting videos of well-known people wishing UTeach a happy birthday.
  • During National Teacher Appreciation Week (May 1-5, 2017), WVUteach and WVU President Gee will be going into a local school to teach a STEM lesson.
  • Anniversary celebrations will culminate May 23-25, 2017, when WVUteach joins UTeach Nation in Austin, TX, at the 2017 Annual UTeach Conference for three days of learning and networking with teachers, universities, and funders from across the nation.
