Oakridge Middle School receives STEM grant from Toshiba America Foundation

Muskegon– Oakridge Public School has received a $4,766 STEM grant from the Toshiba America Foundation (TAF). These funds will support the 8th Grade STEM class in allowing students to build, code, and remotely control a robot.

The majority of the 8th Grade class is enrolled in a STEM class. With these funds, students will be able to engage in project-based learning using Tetrix Robots developed by Pitsco Education. Hands-on learning has been shown to be a powerful tool to help students learn and develop new skills.

Tom Livezey, Superintendent of Oakridge Public Schools said, "Our mission is to provide students a diverse, personalized, and innovative education balanced with quality enrichment experiences in a respectful, responsible, safe, and healthy environment in partnership with the community. This STEM opportunity 100% hits the mark!"

Toshiba America Foundation’s grants fund projects designed by individual classroom teachers. This “direct-to-teacher” approach brings immediate results. Teachers are able to change the way they teach Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects because the grant supports equipment for hands-on experiments and inquiry-based approaches to the curriculum.
