BELVOIR CHAPTER CHAPTER - Mar 22, 2021

Supporting STEM Teachers During a Pandemic

Gina Lewis, chapter vice president for education, presented teachers $25 gift cards, totaling $3,050, as part of the chapter's continued partnership with Fort Belvoir Elementary and Upper Schools. The combined campus educates children from pre-K through the sixth grade and has a robust STEAM program. In STEAM education, students combine science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics to learn, explore and solve problems in new ways. Why the A? STEAM includes the "A" for arts practices and principles. STEAM takes STEM to the next level by emphasizing innovation, design and aesthetics. The chapter has supported Fort Belvoir Elementary Campus, which includes both schools, for over 10 years with teacher grants, science grants, a storage unit and a room dedicated to STEM activities.
