The Foundation continues to enhance our children’s futures by providing them with a variety of learning opportunities.
One recent grant funded Elementary School Garden that teaches students about the soil and how to grow and prepare nutritious food. Appreciation of where our food comes from helps support our local agricultural economy. Learning about nutritious foods helps support a healthy life style.
Another grant funded the middle school STEM lab that has fully engaged students. They love learning about and using an array of technology tools. All students use the lab in a rotation similar to other selected partial year courses. Students choose a project, work in small groups to conduct research, problem solve, and present their finished products at the end of the 10-day class. In the future, the Bridgman Foundation for Educational Excellence will work with the school district to explore new and exciting options to expand STEM learning opportunities in all the district schools.
