SLCSD Teacher Awarded Governor's Medal for Science and Technology
Governor Gary R. Herbert, along with the Utah Science Technology and Research Initiative, announced that Diane Crim, a Salt Lake City School District teacher, is one of four winners of the 2019 Governor’s Medals for Science and Technology.
“I congratulate each of this year’s medal winners and I would like to thank them for their contribution to technology innovation in Utah,” said Gov. Herbert. “It is contributions like these that keep Utah at the forefront of technology innovation and ensure we have a diverse economy that can weather any economic storm.”
Diane Crim is being honored for her 30 years of teaching in multiple schools in the Salt Lake School District, and for her work at the Salt Lake Center for Science Education (SLCSE), with her current assignment at the Bryant campus, which serves a large minority and low-income student population.
She joined a team of educators in 2007 to create the SLCSE in Rose Park to provide a world class STEM education to a broad and diverse student population with a commitment to provide interdisciplinary curriculum and project-based learning. She has partnered with colleagues and university researchers, served as a math coach to other teachers and developed a project-based curriculum for high school statistics which has become the foundation for many data-driven projects at SLCSE.
