Marion County School District has received a $10,000 grant from America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund. The district will use the money to implement a STEM Career Investigation program.
The after-school program gives students in grades 3-8 an opportunity to explore careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The funds will be used to purchase a variety of chemistry, robotics and model building kits, which will enable hands-on and project based learning for students in both math and science classes. Funds will also help facilitate field trips to observe STEM careers, and visits to colleges to learn about education programs. Additionally, the project will allow for teachers to attend professional development workshops, where they will become familiar with resources that enhance career training and education in the classroom.
