CITGO Workshop Winner – Green Springs Elementary School


Green Springs Elementary Wins CITGO’s Fueling Education Grand Prize with a Visit from Steve Spangler’s STEM Team

November 3, 2018

Teachers from the Clyde-Green Springs School District in Clyde, Ohio joined grand prize winner Tracy Nicely for a day of hands-on science fun with Steve Spangler. Tracy Nicely entered the CITGO Fueling Education Sweepstakes for a chance to win a full-day professional development science workshop from Steve Spangler and his team, plus a $5,000 gift certificate for school supplies. It’s all part of CITGO’s Fueling Education initiative to support classroom teachers who are making a difference.
“The best part of the day is watching teachers become the students as they conduct their own experiments and make their own discoveries,” said Steve Spangler who shares his STEM Boot Camp professional development experience with more than 20,000 educators in school districts throughout the country each year. “My job is to start by creating an unforgettable learning experience for the teacher and to unleash their own passion for making science fun for their students.”

“The Spangler STEM Boot Camp was an educator’s dream Professional Development. The teachers were so engaged that we forgot it was a Saturday and were unaware of the time throughout the day,” said Tracy Nicely of Green Springs Elementary. “Steve showed us how STEM is more than a Science experiment, it was learning across the curriculum. His love for teaching is infectious and it renewed the passion for creative teaching in a world of test driven data. This professional development will be a benefit not only to me but my students for years to come.”
Mrs. Nicely was one of three grand prize winners in CITGO’s Fueling Education sweepstakes for 2018. CITGO partnered with Steve Spangler in 2016 to help foster educational opportunities in classrooms across the nation. Since then, CITGO has donated nearly a half a million dollars in much-needed classroom supplies with support from customers.
