Seekonk Public School Receive STEM Career Learning Grants
Seekonk, MA – Superintendent Dr. Rich Drolet is pleased to announce that Seekonk High School and Martin Elementary School have received grants to offer new STEM-based curricular programming to help prepare students for future career success.
“Last year Hurley Middle School received a Project Lead the Way grant and we also have applied for Aitken Elementary School to participate as well. In total, we will have received about $100,000 in grant money for teacher training, curricula materials, and equipment,” Drolet shared. “This means that all four of our schools will be implementing increased STEM-based offerings for our students within the next three years. I am very grateful to our principals and teachers for seeking innovation and exploring hands-on, project-based learning and courses,” Drolet commented.
Project Lead The Way (PLTW) is a nonprofit organization that provides a transformative learning experience for PreK-12 students and teachers through pathways in computer science, engineering and biomedical science. The grant is supported by the Administration of Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker and Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito, the One8 Foundation, and Mass STEM Hub.
