The Ohio Academy of Science selected 58 Ohio schools and 509 teachers to receive Governor’s Thomas Edison Awards for Excellence in STEM Education for the 2016-2017 school year. This is Horizon Lorain’s second year to receive this award along with two other Horizon Schools in Dayton and Cleveland. This is a prestigious award given to educational institutions that stimulate student scientific research and technological design which extend beyond traditional classroom activities.

Horizon Science Academy of Lorain was fortunate to be chosen, as well as three teachers for their exemplary efforts of going beyond the classroom in the STEM fields. Mr. Savas, Mr. Serdar, and Mr. Pekel were all selected for the GOVERNOR’S THOMAS EDISON AWARDS FOR EXCELLENCE IN STEM EDUCATION AND STUDENT RESEARCH. All of them have done outstanding work throughout the years with our students. In the last four years, our students have made incredible progress in Science and Engineering fairs, as well as innovation programs.
