CHARLESTON, W.VA. – The West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE) has awarded STEM-minded Educator Grants to 86 West Virginia educators across the state. The purpose of the program is to fund student-centered STEM projects designed to engage them in interdisciplinary STEM learning.

The STEM-minded Educator Grant Program will award up to $1,000 for materials or technology that can be used in the classroom or in the student’s home.

Receiving one 2021 STEM-minded Educator Grant in Wyoming County was Rachael Bailey of Mullens Elementary School.

“West Virginia students must be prepared to be productive citizens in a world driven by a STEM-focused marketplace, and this grant opportunity provides educators with the support needed to challenge and motivate students with an innovative approach,” said State Superintendent of Schools W. Clayton Burch. “We want to equip students, families and school personnel with the tools necessary to become active learners.”
