Among these are grants for students to learn and to address community and current issues such as anatomy, astronomy, climate change, engineering, physics, and COVID-19 response. All novel ways to utilise STEM in the classroom in order to give back to the community and enrich next generations. For example, students at Perry Central High School, Leopold, IN will be using 3D printers purchased with Toshiba funds to learn about engineering and to solve their community’s real life engineering problems.
“Science, technology, engineering and mathematics occupations play a key role in the sustained growth and stability of the US economy. STEM education creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators,” said TAF President, John Anderson. “The grants make the STEM classroom more exciting for both teachers and students.”
Toshiba America Foundation’s grants aim to fund projects designed by innovative classroom teachers. This “direct-to-teacher” approach brings immediate results, TAF said. Teachers are able to enhance the way they teach STEM subjects because the grant supports equipment for hands-on experiments and project-based learning in the curriculum. At TAF, we believe that learning STEM subjects is a lot more fun and engaging than just reading a textbook.
