MyStemKits’ Time2Give Inspiration.
In the spirit of continuing their community involvement MyStemKits partnered with Time2Give and created a grant that provided STEM Labs to an elementary, middle, high School, and an extended day program within the Atlanta Public School System. The applicants were awarded the STEM Labs based on their application and video entry explaining what the STEM labs would mean for the advancement of education in their school.
Each grant package awarded included two Dremel 3D printers, 3D printer filament, MyStemKits.com 3D manipulative and curriculum access for two years, $500 of kit supplies, training from the MyStemkits team, and ongoing mentorship for the school/organization.
Time2Give and MyStemKits CEO, Laron Walker, together with Atlanta Public Schools, surprised the four winners with a $15,000 STEM 3D-printing lab. As seen in the video below, the responses from each awardee exemplified the understanding of the importance these STEM labs held with elevating the levels of life for the communities they would affect.
This last week we had the joy of announcing the 4 winners of the 2018 STEM Lab grants provided by MyStemKits & Time2Give. Each lab included Dremel Education 3D printers, a MyStemKits subscription, professional development, and classroom supplies totaling $15,000.Watch the video to see how the schools reacted upon finding out they won! #3DSTEM #makerspace Thanks to Atlanta Public Schools for supporting us on this project! #APS #Atlanta
