Robert A. Dean
Memorial Scholarship

Bob Dean was an inspiring leader in science education for decades both locally and nationally.  As Science Coordinator at the San Diego County Office of Education, he founded the Greater San Diego Science Teachers Association, which later became SDSEA.  He also helped found the San Diego Computer Using Educators Association (SDCUE). In addition he established the Southern California Association of Science Supervisors (SCASS) and was president of the National Science Supervisors Association, later to become NSELA.  After "retiring" from the County Office of Education, he and his wife Melanie wrote, received, and coordinated many NSF grants for summer science teacher training academies at UCSD.

Bob's impact on science education in our area and beyond was amazing.  He constantly sought to bring out the best in everyone around him, and tirelessly encouraging others to pursue their dreams.  In this spirit, SDSEA is announcing a science leadership scholarship fund in his memory. Details are available by clicking the "Scholarships" link at the left.
