This grant money will allow STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) programing to be integrated into the curriculum at each grade level. Students will utilize the scientific method for problem solving and engage in hands-on activities that will enhance their skill set for using technology. Some program highlights that will be offered include: a closed aquatic ecosystem, a planetarium projector, a balloon-car racing activity, a simple machines kit, a standing wave demonstrator, ice melting blocks, and an animal classification study kit.
