Battelle STEM Grants Program
The awards for the 2017 Battelle STEM Grants Program have been announced. Read the press release here.
Our grants program seeks to fund programs that:
- Create out-of-classroom STEM experiences kids love
- Integrate to modern academic standards to better prepare participants for success back at school
- Serve the Central Ohio region where Battelle is headquartered
This year, we profiled three programs that started and sustained their programs with support from Battelle. Here's what they had to say.
Teen Open Studio is a twice weekly, drop-in program offered free to teens aged 13-19. It provides a space where participants can exhibit creative, artistic thinking and benefit from peer collaboration, mentor guidance and workshops with professionals.
Shadowbox Live will expand its partnership with Columbus State Community College to teach American Sign Language (ASL) students artistic interpretation and how to physically and emotionally embrace the characters performing on stage to expand theatrical interpreting services to the deaf community.
Partnering with middle schools in Licking County, The Works: Ohio Center for History, Art and Technology expands creative out-of-school opportunities for students to explore STEM concepts and careers while expanding the program’s reach to more than 200 students.
