This document presents a transcript of the proceedings of the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology to recognize the recipients of the 1991 Presidential Awards for Excellence in Science and Mathematics Education in elementary school. Along with Walter Massey, the director of the National Science Foundation (NSF), a panel comprised of some of the honorees (Carol Van de Walle, Jacqueline Wilcox, John Donlan, and Jacqueline Goodloe) gave their views about elementary school science and mathematics and related their experiences with the NSF's science and mathematics education programs. The panel also gave recommendations on how Congress could better support science and mathematics education in elementary schools. The topics discussed included: need for material and professional support in elementary school science and mathematics instruction; parent and student attitudes towards science and mathematics; inservice teacher education; and educational innovations. Prepared statements by several participants are included. (MDH)
