Jersey Shore to use grant money for engineering program
The Jersey Shore Area School District has announced the receipt of a $15,000 grant from the Bayer Fund’s America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education program.
According to Steven Keen, the district’s High School prinicpal, the computers will be used in the CTE Engineering program to develop skills in that area.
“CTE and STEM education are an important part of the education that students receive at Jersey Shore and this will enhance those offerings,” said Dr. Brian Ulmer, district superintendent.
Ulmer added the district is “especially grateful to the Jersey Shore Education Foundation in securing this grant.”
Since 2010, Bayer Fund’s America’s Farmers programs have awarded more than $57million to nonprofits, schools and ag students in rural areas of the country.
The program partners with local farmers to nominate rural public school districts in order to award the merit-based grants for STEM curriculum.
