Native American Heritage Month is a great time to celebrate the outstanding work done by Native American STEM educators across the country. One of those teachers – Diedre Young, received a 2015 Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST), the nation’s highest honor for teachers in those fields. Read more below.

Native American Heritage Month: Celebrating Teachers

As Native American Heritage Month draws to a close, we asked several Native American scientists to tell us about their work in their own words. Here is what they had to say.
Today, scientists restarted the twin detectors of #NSFfunded LIGO, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory, after making several improvements to the system. Yes, we're excited about what LIGO will discover next. Photo credit: LIGO
