Riverside High Teacher honored with Prudential Math Architect Award by STTE Foundation

Riverside High School science teacher Sergio Estrada received the Prudential Math Architect Award from the Success Through Technology Education (STTE) Foundation.

“Mr. Estrada pushes his students to view the world through the eyes of physics and math in order to provide a deeper understanding of the world around them,” Ysleta ISD officials shared. “He encourages students to apply to NASA internships, summer engineering camps at tier 1 universities, and to challenge themselves through STEM competitions.”

Estrada’s students won the Prudential Math Challenge last spring, have won a national NASA sponsored competition, and each year reach over 1,000 people by doing science demonstrations at local schools and the Chihuahuas stadium.

This past summer Estrada was selected by the Texas Space Grant Consortium to be part of NASA’s LiftOff summer institute and one of eight teachers nationwide to be selected for Joint Science and Technology Institute in Aberdeen, Maryland.

“There are so many teachers in our region doing amazing work that too often goes unrecognized. There is a strong spirit of innovation, entrepreneurship, and creativity in the way that educators are working to prepare our students for their futures,” said Joseph Sapien, executive director of the STTE Foundation. “The 2019 Education Award recipients represent the best of this spirit and we are honored to celebrate them and their work.”

The organization hosted the 2019 Education Awards honoring eight leaders in education who are preparing students to be successful in the modern economy.

The educators recognized during the ceremony have excelled at supporting young students to pursue careers in the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) fields, providing innovating approaches to curriculum, after school programming, and access to various means of professional development to students in the El Paso region.

Created by the STTE Foundation, this year’s Education Awards is the second annual event for the Awards, providing a unique opportunity to bring together community stakeholders, educators, and other local leaders to support and highlight efforts to ensure that El Paso remains competitive as technological, math and engineering-focused careers continue to become an increasingly significant sector of the local and national economy.
