Congratulations to Scarborough Model Middle School technology media specialist Kellie Ward, who received a $5,000 Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grant.
The money will be used to purchase 3D printers for the maker space in the school’s library. Students will use the printers to create learning products based on their STEM-based assignments. STEM is Science, Technology Engineering and Mathematics.
The project is scheduled to be completed in May.
Since its inception in 2006, Lowe’s Toolbox for Education has provided nearly $45 million in grants to more than 10,000 schools, benefiting more than 6 million schoolchildren. Grants are available to K-12 public schools in the United States for a wide range of improvement projects.
Schools may be eligible to receive grants up to $100,000. Parent groups and educators can apply by visiting: ToolboxForEducation.com.
