GK-12 Invitation to President Obama sign now

Mr. Barack Obama
President of the United States of America
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, D.C.

Dear President Obama:

Since assuming the presidency of the United States of America, you have been a vigorous advocate of advancing the STEM education agenda in our nations K-12 schools. Your administration is spurring innovations in K-12 education through the Race to the Top program. In response to your call to professional scientists and engineers to participate in enhancing the STEM education of K-12 students, we witnessed the launch of National Lab Day in spring 2010. Moreover, on October 18, 2010, you hosted a science fair at the White House to celebrate winners of various STEM competitions.

Mr. President, we are writing to inform you about a wonderful program of the National Science Foundation titled, Graduate STEM Fellows in K-12 Education (GK-12 Fellows). For over a decade, the GK-12 Fellows program has focused on addressing the critical K-20 STEM pipeline issue and significantly impacting the training of future scientists and engineers. Specifically, the GK-12 Fellows program is synergistically broadening the training and education of STEM graduate students, providing rigorous STEM professional development to K-12 teachers, and enriching STEM education of K-12 students. Since its inception, the GK-12 Fellows program has funded 299 projects at 182 higher education institutions. These GK-12 Fellows projects have supported 7,440 STEM graduate Fellows who have partnered with 10,717 K-12 Teachers, working in 5,503 different schools, to enrich the STEM education of 550,024 K-12 students.

Mr. President, given your commitment and passion for reinvigorating STEM education in our nations schools, we invite you to visit the 2011 GK-12 Fellows Project Meeting, which is scheduled from March 11-13, 2011, in Washington, DC. These meetings are attended by the members of GK-12 project teams from across the nation (principal investigators, graduate Fellows, K-12 teachers, graduate research advisors, university and school administrators, and others).

Mr. President, we invite you to give a talk on the paramount importance of STEM education in maintaining and strengthening our leadership in scientific discovery and technological innovation. We also invite you to interact with the meeting participants to discover how the GK-12 Fellows program is allowing our nations universities and schools to collaborate in seeding innovations in STEM education.

We look forward to having you with us.
