How to Help
We're excited to share that the $35,000 in grants have been distributed to eight innovative organizations supporting community-based STEM projects. Earlier this year, the Society gave $20,000 to five other organizations.
Through the STEM Action Grant Program, supported by Regeneron, the Society funds mission-driven organizations that promote STEM and science literacy.
STEM Action Grants
The STEM Action Grants support organizations that aim to nurture the public’s understanding of STEM fields, spark a life-long interest in and appreciation for STEM fields through unique programming and increase participation in STEM fields of underrepresented populations.
The following organizations received STEM Action Grants:
Teachers in rural counties in Florida face difficulties when they try engaging students in science. Their equipment is outdated, sometimes taking an entire class session to boot up.
Before taking an introduction to research course in high school, Sumaita Ahmed had never read a scientific article. But she knew she liked science.
High school students in Washington, D.C. are building a water purification prototype. They plan to make it small enough so families can use it in their homes, purifying their own water.
