Chapters Education Foundation Donates to Local Schools

In October, the chapter's Education Foundation was proud to award Science Teaching Tools Grants for educational-related funding to two deserving schools within Alabama's River Region. Jada Meadows and her third-grade students at George Washington Carver Elementary received a Science Teaching Tools Grant of $1,000 to fund the purchase of Lego building bricks and associated educational materials. Meadows plans to incorporate the Lego bricks into an architecture-related project that will dually enable students to gain experience with basic engineering and mathematics principles. Dr. Erinn Camille Floyd and students from Macon County proudly accepted a Science Teaching Tools Grant of $1,500 to fund the purchase of Lego Mindstorms robotics kits to continue the promotion of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education among students. Macon County students will use the robots to learn about programming, engineering and technology in preparation for upcoming competitions. Both donations were presented by the chapter's Education Foundation director, Charisse Stokes. The chapter is proud to support these hard-working instructors and students and looks forward to making additional donations to deserving educational institutions in coming weeks.
