The White House announced recipients of the 2005 Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering Mentoring (PAESMEM), a program to increase the participation of underrepresented groups–such as women, minorities and people with disabilities–in science, mathematics and engineering education at all levels. The award includes a $10,000 grant.

The deadline for submitting applications is March 7 for the 2006 Presidential Awards for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering Mentoring.

I wonder how a high school biology or chemistry teacher who uses advanced technologies, such as a Tablet PC, might participate in this program.
