Classroom grants presented for elementary STEM projects

Two classroom grants for student invention kits were awarded at Monday’s meeting of the Rossford Board of Education.

Doug Miller, president of the Bulldog Foundation, presented $440 to Maria Pratt of EaglePoint Elementary and $459 to Andrea Iman of Glenwood Elementary.

“We have given several thousand dollars so far, and we’re planning to continue,” he said.

Ms. Pratt will purchase Makedo kits, which are a cardboard construction system for creative thinking with the STEM curriculum.

Reusable tools and cardboard will be used during learning labs to encourage third-graders to create and experiment in the projects they make for kindergarten students.

Students also will create a video that explains their design process and how the kindergarteners will use the creations.
