Donation to help implement the Project Lead the Way Engineering Pathway at the high school level.
TAYLORVILLE – Taylorville High School announced today it received a grant for $13,000 from Bayer Fund, which will be used to purchase STEM equipment for the Project Lead the Way Engineering Pathway courses.
Taylorville High School is excited about the opportunity to expand the STEM program at the junior high to our high school students. We will be utilizing the grant funds
to purchase the equipment needed to offer two courses next year that will follow the PLTW curriculum.
This grant will not only provide support to our organization, but also the community we serve by allowing us to provide hands on training and possible college credit to students in this area. This will allow students who participate in the program to be better prepared for college and prepare those entering the workforce hands on training in several engineering disciplines.
“Throughout the years, the grants given through Bayer Fund have helped strengthen our communities across the United States,” said Al Mitchell, President of Bayer Fund. “We’re proud to be able to provide support to develop programs that help combat challenges such as food insecurity, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education and support services to patients and families managing an illness or disease.”
In 2020, Bayer Fund awarded more than $17 million to over 3,400 charitable and nonprofit organizations to help address essential needs in food and nutrition, STEM education and community development. Over the last five years, nonprofit organizations across the U.S. have received more than $80 million.
