Bob Thompson Excellence in Energy Awards
It was all science. All the time. Bob explored. Bob taught exploration. Bob energized workshops of teachers and classrooms of kids.
He was special. Special to all of us at NEED and to the teachers and students he worked with over time. Because of this, NEED has established the Bob Thompson Excellence in Energy Award that will be given each year to a teacher who exemplifies Bob's childlike wonder of science and energy. The award includes a $1,000 cash grant to the teacher to use as he/she chooses in the classroom and an all-expenses paid trip to the NEED Energy Conference for Educators hosted each July. This year, the award will be given at the 34th Annual NEED Youth Awards for Energy Achievement in Washington, D.C. June 23 2014 and the teacher will attend the NEED Energy Conference for Educators July 20-24 in Savannah, GA.
