Wright receives Noyce Scholar Alumni Award

Keith Wright (M.Ed 2007), a chemistry teacher at Springfield Renaissance High School and a Master Teaching Fellow for the National Science Foundation’s Robert Noyce S2TLC project at UMass Amherst’s College of Education, has been selected as one of seven participants nationally in the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s “Voices from the Field” video series.

The series is produced as a part of the NSF-funded project, The Noyce Connection: Building a Community of Science and Mathematics Teacher Educators. The series is based on the Voices from the Field panel, which is presented annually at the NSF Noyce Conference, and which features Noyce Scholar alumni who are currently teaching in high needs schools.

The project includes individual video interviews of the seven award recipients, which will be featured online; a compilation video of interviews with all awardees that highlights the Noyce Program and the impact it is having on STEM teacher production for high needs districts; a recruitment video for use by Noyce grantees designed to interest students in enrolling in Noyce teacher preparation programs; and a promotional video that highlights the impact of the Noyce Program for use in presentations for school, government, peer, and community programs.
