The Los Alamos National Laboratory Foundation has announced $2.1 million in grants to public schools in seven Northern New Mexico counties to teach science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The educational area, known as STEM, promotes teacher training, curriculum development, technology in the classroom and support to students in preparation for STEM careers.
The Foundation Educational Enrichment grants are awarded to school districts based on the percentage of laboratory and contractor employees living within the school districts in Los Alamos, Santa Fe, Rio Arriba, Taos, San Miguel, Sandoval and Mora counties.
Susan Herrera, foundation chief executive officer, said, “When you walk into the classroom where fourth graders are wiring up electrical circuits you can see that spark go off and you know they can be our scientists, physicians and other professionals of tomorrow. This is why our foundation was started: to invest in Northern New Mexico’s human potential.”
2012 grants are:
• Espanola Public Schools: $863,605 to improve technology, provide Inquiry Science Kits to students district-wide, help math teachers with professional development and to employ an instructional technologist and also a science literacy coach.
