This mini-grant program supports STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Match) education projects and programs throughout West Virginia that serve the PreK-12th grade student population and encourages educators (in both school and outside of school settings) to integrate STEM disciplines in their curriculum and educational programming.
Through this grant program, applicants may request up to $3,000.00 to implement or expand a STEM education project or program. All applications must be postmarked by January 30, 2016. The application is here.
OUR GOAL is to keep WV Environmental Education professionals and teachers connected with each other across the state.
