Licking Heights Local Schools recently received two major grants to support student learning from Battelle’s Ohio STEM Learning Network and Google’s Data Center Community Grants Program. The district was awarded $5,000 from Battelle and $49,100 from Google.

The school’s Ohio STEM grant is one of 233 issued this fall by Battelle to create sustainable STEM learning projects. It will fund a project titled "Beep Beep–Don’t Go to Sleep," which will provide Ozobots to kindergarten students at North Elementary. Students will use the Ozobots, which are desk robots for classroom use, to learn the basics of coding.

In total, 161 public schools also received funding through the Ohio STEM award. The program reaches students in one of every seven school districts across 60 Ohio counties. $5,000 is the maximum amount a classroom may receive through a grant. The district earned another $5,000 Ohio STEM grant from Battelle last year.
