#ExtremeTeacher Contests

We’re giving away new classroom tools every month!

To participate in the current #ExtremeTeacher giveaway, look for this month’s contest post on the ORAU Facebook page and be sure to follow all of the instructions for eligibility. Good luck!

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of Extreme Classroom Makeover, ORAU launched the #ExtremeTeacher campaign on Facebook. Every month, we give away brand new classroom tools—3D printers, Chromebooks, Math and Movement kits, etc. Winners are selected by random drawing among teachers who liked the monthly contest post and describe in the comments how they would put the giveaway item to use in their classroom. Winners must teach at a public or private school within 50 miles of Oak Ridge.

#ExtremeTeacher has proven so popular—and needed—that we are continuing the program. Teachers have demonstrated that there continues to be a great need for technology-related classroom tools. While we wish we could meet every need that exists, #ExtremeTeacher gives us an additional platform to meet the needs we can.
