Congratulations, 2016 STEM Grant Award Winners!
AzCASE and Cox Communications are proud to announce the recipients of the 2016 STEM Grants for out-of-school time programs. The sixth grant cycle of the STEM Grant program brought in over 90 applications designed to encourage and promote the inclusion of informal STEM learning opportunities in Arizona out-of-school programs. Needless to say, the judges had a tremendous challenge on their hands!
Grants ranged from $500 to $1500 and the nine selected grant recipients come from programs spanning the state. From 3-D printing to controlling robots with coding, these programs will provide youth with valuable skills to prepare them for success in college, career and life. In addition to the nine grant recipients, there were nine finalists that will receive 4-H Rockets to the Rescue kits to bring to their programs.
