Santa and his elves surprised White Settlement ISD educators when they awarded nearly $50,000 in innovative teaching grants on Friday, Dec. 15.
The Foundation received a grant from AT&T to award Innovative STEM grants to Brewer High School teachers and proceeds from its annual golf tournament funded an additional $25,000 in grants.
The grants will give teachers the opportunity to transform their classrooms and purchase items such as drones and Breakout Educational Kits. Grants will also allow students to travel through the solar system, create their own Shark Tank production by using their math skills, and work their way through an escape room.
Many teachers ... starting at the elementary level ... will get to purchase items and programs to implement Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) in their classrooms.
