Students to Experience ‘STEM@Work’ Through AT&T
For the seventh year in a row AT&T has partnered with the Consortium of Florida Education Foundations to support student achievement in STEM areas. The CFEF has received $75,000 to provide $2,000 grants to local education foundations to create real-world, hands-on learning experiences in the classroom to connect students with actual STEM professionals and careers through AT&T funding.
Since 2010, a total of $685,000 of AT&T funding has had the following impact:
- 300 projects
- 50,830 students impacted
- 596 STEM business partners engaged
- $1,019,200 total investment (with local match)
From creating human-powered submarines to propagating nematodes, each project varied depending on the goals and workplace partners involved. AT&T funds were used to provide supplies, equipment and transportation to make each classroom vision a reality.
This year 34 grants have been funded to provide creative learning opportunities that will have measurable impact on student understanding of STEM curriculum and interest in future STEM careers.
