Rapid City Schools Applying For Math And Science Grants

Two Rapid City schools will be applying for grants to provide more opportunities in science and math for their students, reports the Rapid City Journal

Black Hawk Elementary will apply for a $5,000 Classroom Innovation Grant, which would provide funds for materials and staff training to add a makerspace to their library.  This grant is provided by the South Dakota Department of Education, and applicants will be notified of grants awarded on November 30.

Stevens High School is applying for a $30,000 Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research Grant.  This grant would supply funds for 5 STEM workshops to take place during the 2016/17 school year.  Each workshop would have room for 10 students, and cover physics, water resources, data collection, mathematics and 3D printing.
