Gloucester High School will be recognized at a ceremony in Richmond on Monday for its exemplary science, technology and mathematics (STEM) team.
The award will be presented by the Virginia Mathematics & Science Coalition, which annually recognized exemplary mathematics, science and integrated science, technology, engineering and mathematics programs for which there is evidence of a positive effect on student or teacher learning, a spokesman said.
The coalition's "Programs That Work" award is for schools, colleges and universities in Virginia that:
--Represent innovative, exemplary programs that have proven effective with all students or teachers;
--Demonstrates the important science, mathematics and/or STEM concepts, skills and processes that students and teachers learned as a result of the program;
--Documents the impact of the program on teaching and learning of the science, mathematics and/or STEM concepts.
The 11 award-winning projects, including Gloucester, will be recognized at the Virginia General Assembly building in conference room 3-West, from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., a spokesman said. There will also be a ceremony in the Pre-Function Hall of the Library of Virginia from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
