I love this! From the South Milwaukee Library …
Two grants totaling $2,600 will help the South Milwaukee Library introduce and engage the community’s elementary-grade students in STEAM fields – Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics.
Eaton Corporation, located in South Milwaukee, is the sponsor of the $1,700 Science Kits for Public Libraries grant which originates from the Milwaukee Chapter of the Institute of Electronic and Electrical Engineers.
A $900 grant, awarded from Sequence & Stories, will also involve young people in STEAM activities.
The grants will fund age-appropriate programming and hands-on equipment for young people to learn about STEAM areas with the goal of providing an early pathway into career exploration. In addition, the library’s programs will be shared at a later date with South Milwaukee schools and other Milwaukee County Public Libraries.
“This is an important public-private partnership that will benefit many young students and may even be the launching point for careers,” said Kathy Manning, South Milwaukee Library director.
Eaton Corporation officials will present their sponsored grant at the South Milwaukee Library in a brief ceremony December 12 at 4:30 p.m.
The public is invited.
