#ExtremeTeacher Contests

We’re giving away new classroom tools every month!

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of Extreme Classroom Makeover, ORAU launched the #ExtremeTeacher campaign on Facebook. 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.

As a math intervention specialist, Tabitha Rue helps students improve their scores on state math tests. She works with 24 students a day in eight small groups that range in size from two to six. Because the school is at capacity, Rue doesn’t teach in a classroom. Rather, she has dedicated space in the school’s teacher lounge. Rue received five brand-new HP Chromebooks as a winner of ORAU’s #ExtremeTeacher contest. They could not have come at a better time.
