What could you do with $1500?
Tell us your STEM project idea!
 
 
We are committed to helping you incorporate or expand the use of STEM-based learning in your program. That’s why we are once again partnering with Cox Communications to award a total of $15,000 in STEM grants ranging from $500 to $1,500. Applications will be reviewed by an independent judging panel with extra points given to programs that have signed the Make It Count Pledge and who have submitted an Assessment using the AzQSAT. Additional consideration will be given to programs that promote equity.

Invest in Afterschool STEM Programs to Prepare the Medical Science Leaders of Tomorrow
Repost from Chicago Daily Herald
 
As vaccine-laden trucks roll across the United States, it is impossible to miss the vital role that scientific research has played in the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We can thank scientists, technicians and researchers for the tiny vials of vaccine headed toward our biceps to save hundreds of thousands, even millions of lives. This scientific breakthrough — like so many others — may well have begun in an after-school classroom.
