Teachers receive $100,000 in STEM Research Grants

Society for Science & the Public is excited to announce that we have awarded $100,000 in STEM Research Grants to 23 science teachers across the country. These teachers are mentoring students, many of whom are underprivileged and underrepresented, in authentic STEM research projects.

The grants help fund transportation to research facilities and the purchase of project materials such as robotics kits, DNA research equipment, microscopes, electrophoresis classroom kits, field biology collection kits and general laboratory supplies including petri dishes, sensors and pipettes. The possibilities for meaningful STEM research opportunities afforded by this grant are endless. Thanks to the STEM Research Grant, these teachers will have the resources necessary to inspire the next generation of STEM leaders with exciting research.

Congratulations to these teachers for receiving a STEM Research Grant!
