High school teacher to accept STEM prize

Natick High science teacher Doug Scott will be honored as the 2014 Massachusetts STEM Teacher of the Year during an Oct. 22 ceremony at the DCU Center in Worcester. The Stow resident, who has taught at Natick High since 2003, will receive the award at the Massachusetts STEM Summit. Scott developed the school’s STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) curriculum, and last spring took a group of students to participate in the White House Science Fair. His citation, to be presented by the Hall at Patriot Place and Raytheon Corp., will be accompanied by a $5,000 award to be used to support STEM programs at the school. “I am honored to be selected for this award,” Scott said in a statement. “I know there were many worthy candidates and I want to thank the committee for their dedication to STEM education. As teachers, I think we all try to have a positive impact on our students, and that is certainly what I have tried to do with students of all levels and ability.”
