Grant Develops Scientific and Technical Minds

The chapter, in partnership with its corporate sponsors, awarded $4,000 in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) grants to Alaska schools this year. The chapter, along with Gonzalez Marketing, awarded $1,000 to Anchorage Christian School, and Aaron Edwards, a teacher at the school, has used the funds to teach his students about robotics, mechanics and science through the purchase of LEGO Mindstorms kits. These programmable kits help the students study principles such as solar and wind power, robotics, torque, pneumatics and mechanics, helping build the scientific and technical minds of tomorrow. This is truly a success story that the chapter is proud to contribute to these programs and hopes to double its corporate sponsorship donations next year.
