Boeing Announces $10,000 for STEM Professional Development

 

Columbia HS students work with their CAD drawings and the new CNC router machine in the Wood Shop. It is so great to have modern technology in our schools.

WSVEF2014.Still002It is with sincere gratitude that we thank Insitu/Boeing for their continued support of our Science, Technology, Engineering and Math curriculum kindergarten through grade 12 in this school year.

It’s true, government funding does not fully cover the cost of education in our schools. Shrinking budgets have left little funds for professional development. With new technologies in our classrooms, teachers need to be well prepared to instruct the modern student.

White Salmon is fortunate to have a company that is helping us to build our STEM related instruction during these times. The funds will help expand our teachers’ instructional practice in Science and Math; allow staff to develop and disseminate STEM pathways to aid 7-12th grade students in selecting advanced STEM coursework; and create a professional development plan to continue to deepen teachers’ skills in instruction.

This is the third year in a row that we have been given this great gift. Thank you Insitu/Boeing!
