Two Maryland educators have been chosen to take part in a prestigious, national fellowship program focused on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education.

Green Street Academy teacher Desmond Rowe will be among 40 educators from across the nation heading to the Siemens Teachers as Researchers fellowship program in July, according to a release from the corporation. Amanda Peretich, a teacher from Calvert High School in Prince Frederick, was also awarded the fellowship this year. 

According to Siements, "the program is designed to empower teachers to bring the excitement of authentic research into their classrooms and inspire students to pursue [STEM] education," and the educators will be working in national laboratories "where teams of scientists work solve to America's most pressing problems relating to energy, the environment and national security."
