Southern Columbia Area has been selected to receive a $10,000.00 grant from the The Grow Rural Education program, sponsored by the Bayer Fund. The program allows eligible farmers to nominate their local public school district for grants to help enhance STEM education. Once nominated, school districts submit applications to compete for grants to help fund projects that enhance their STEM curriculum. The applications are reviewed first by STEM teachers, then by the America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education Farmer Advisory Council, a group of 27 prominent farmers from across the country. Southern's winning proposal, entitled Building a Better STEM Ecosystem in SCA for our Students and Central PA, will equip the Metal Technology classroom with a Horizontal Bandsaw and a Hydraulic Metal Fabricator. The new equipment will give students exposure to industry-grade equipment, enhancing course curricula and creating new opportunities for college credit with Penn College of Technology as well as other learning experiences.
