Science is always happening in Brevard; visit our events calendar to see how you can participate.
The Exemplary Science Teacher Awards program was started in 1999 by the SCSEA and the Brevard Science Advisory Council to recognize outstanding science teachers in Brevard County. Annually, the SCSEA holds an awards dinner to honor the efforts of eight science teachers from Brevard County who demonstrate best practices in the area of science instruction. It is our way of saying thank you for a job well done. As a community, we send a strong message when we identify and reward those great teachers that educate our children.
The SCSEA Science Bowl for Middle School Students (grades 6 - 8) is a fast-paced question and answer format competition, similar to Jeopardy, during which students answer questions about earth science, physical science, life science, math, energy, and general science. Our Science Bowl for Middle School Students page lists the competition rules and the steps required to register a team.
Each year, the SCSEA presents the Aspiring Scientist Award to two elementary students whose science fair projects, although not first place winners, showed unusual creativity and scientific thinking. These students are recognized to inspire their continued interest in science.
The SCSEA Speaker Series provides middle and high school students and the general public with information on timely science-related topics by engaged scientists. The Speaker Series presentations take place approximately four times a year in the early evenings, at various hosting sites around the county. A few examples of past Speaker Series presentations include Forensic Anthropology; Preserving Brevard, Why Endangered Lands Matter; The Twin Challenges of Peak Oil & Climate Change and Renewable Energy in Disaster Relief. Perhaps the highlight of the Speaker Series presentations is the opportunity for the students to ask questions of the speakers in an informal atmosphere.
