Mars Planet Foundation awarded a $300 Teaching Enrichment Grant to Mars Area School District’s elementary STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art Mathematics) program.
The funding will be used to purchase three IPEVO Document Cameras, one for each STEAM classroom at Mars Area Centennial School, Mars Area Elementary School and Mars Area Primary Center. The cameras may be used to project lessons on the classrooms’ Promethean interactive white board to enable students to see processes or techniques in more detail.
Each school year, Mars Planet Foundation awards Teaching Enrichment Grants to Mars Area teachers/staff members to provide unique educational opportunities that are not part of the current curriculum and to maximize learning initiatives.
