DuPont is also very grateful for the support that thousands of science teachers have given The DuPont Challenge over the years. In fact, the success of The DuPont Challenge has been due in large part to the commitment of the entire science education community. We give special thanks to our partners at the National Science Teachers Association, Encyclopedia Britannica, , and A+ Media. The prizes and awards for the 2015-2016 awards will be fulfilled and our winning teachers will be recognized at the 2017 NSTA conference in Los Angeles.
I’m not proud of Trump. That’s impossible to over-state. It makes me sick the way he’s already plundering the state. Even the way he’s turning his back on the same poor slobs that elected him. But I’m proud of and inspired by Obama and many, many others who held that same office. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished in stem cell research, even though I think it’s sad we had to sideline that work for so many years under Bush. And proud of those who step up to help victims of catastrophes in other countries, like my friend in the Navy who ran a hospital ship off the coast of Haiti, even though we’ve also done some appalling things in war zones. And so on.
