$10,000 grant check presented at Elba Central School Board meeting in library, money will strengthen STEM education
Elba Central School has been awarded a $10,000 grant to enhance its curriculum for STEM -- Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
By working with farmers, America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education Program, sponsored by the Bayer Fund, awarded $2.3 million in grants nationwide this year to strengthen STEM education in rural schools.
The schools that received grants were nominated and selected by farmers in their communities and Elba's farmers answered the call to strengthen STEM education.
Elba's grant will allow it to produce and broadcast video announcements.
There will be a check presentation at the Monday, Sept. 9 Board of Education meeting at 7 p.m. at the Elba Central School Library Media Center. (The school is located at 57 S. Main St. in Elba.)
