CPY STEM – Science from Scientists
    Mary Stewart described the educational program for which we have obtained matching grant funds [from donations made to The Rotary Foundation]. Scientists from the nonprofit organization Science from Scientists will visit CPY twice a month for 9 months, bringing equipment for hands-on science experiences for children in kindergarten through 8th grade.
    The objective of Science from Scientists is to teach and inspire the next generation to identify and solve real-world problems by improving STEM literacy, and address the STEM workforce gap. The curriculum meets Minnesota standards and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Disciplines introduced include physics, engineering, anatomy, physiology, chemistry, earth science, life science, technology and scientific practices.
    Mary asks Rotarians and their friends to volunteer to help.
    The $9,000 provided by this grant counts towards CPY’s goal to receive a $100,000 match for money raised between now and the end of 2023. Each $1 we provided for our grant proposal is now worth $4!
