Aiming to help Slackwood School students develop their STEM skills, the Lawrence Township Education Foundation has awarded a $20,182 grant to the Lawrence Township Public Schools to bring a fully stocked STEM (science, engineering, technology, math) cart into the school’s renovated library.
The money, which was donated to the Lawrence Township Education Foundation by the Bristol-Myers Squibb Corp., will be used for two initiatives – S.E.E. STEM (Strengthening Equitable Experiences in STEM) and B.E. STEM (Building Entries into STEM).
Nearly three dozen bins on the STEM cart will be filled with construction material, circuits, robotics and basis low-tech items such as cardboard, duct tape, string and glue.
Using the materials in the STEM cart, students in the grades K-3 school can come up with creative ideas to apply their STEM skills in the classroom….
