We’re featuring another grant winner, Bancroft-Rosalie School who received $5,000 for a new engineering program.
The grant will allow the school to provide an Introduction to Engineering class as part of its focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) coursework. This class will teach students skills including sketching and visualization, project modeling, and production. STEM courses are vitally important in preparing students for jobs in the new economy.
The funds will help the school purchase a 3-D printer, 3-D scanner, a rotary tool kit, CO2 car kits, and machining kits. 3-D printing is revolutionizing many industries including manufacturing and medical technology.
This grant is part of its “Commitment to Our Schools” program. The program has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars to schools for a wide range of projects including aquaponics labs, student-run businesses, and theater renovations. We are so proud of all of our grant winners and can’t wait to see what Bancroft-Rosalie creates!
