National Recipient

Mary Storey , Rene Aston ,

Parents of Rene Aston and Mary Storey's students at Central Park Public School in Markham, Ontario, were very happy when their children were introduced to a science, mathematics and technology program that is fun, but still strong on basics. Ms. Aston and Ms. Storey teach an integrated program they developed that has students spending entire afternoons working on science, technology and mathematics. The program has proved to be especially beneficial for students who previously showed little interest in or aptitude for science.
