Westinghouse Launches STEM Grant


Westinghouse Electric Co. has launched a new grant program for middle schools and high schools. Dubbed the "N-Visioning a Brighter Future Grant Program," the grant will award $1,000 each to five schools based on the merits of their proposed hands-on project with students.

N-Visioning a Brighter Future is a competitive grant designed to "encourage both teachers and students to think of a creative project based on energy, math, science, or technology in the context of worldwide political, economic, and environmental realities."

Proposed projects must include direct student involvement and incorporate "community resources, interdisciplinary, or team-teaching principles."

All middle schools and high schools where Westinghouse has a presence are eligible to apply for the grant. Further details can be found at the link below.
