Arizona Science Center gets grant to expand STEM

Arizona Science Center

The APS Foundation of America is enhancing its partnership with Arizona Science Center, with a $1 million grant to the Rural Communities Expansion Project.

This grant will sustain the professional development of K-8 teachers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) subjects and allow the program to expand into Cochise and Yuma counties.

The program brings Arizona Science Center staff into schools for a full-day, hands-on event. To date, it has impacted over 400 teachers, 10,500 students and 21 administrators from 15 schools in nine rural districts, where high-quality STEM professional development opportunities were limited.
