AFCEA STEM Kickstarter Project Grant Award

As part of St. Louis School’s continuing commitment to STEM education, we are pleased to announce that we have been awarded a grant under the AFCEA Central Maryland (CMD) STEM Kickstarter program for the second year in a row. AFCEA International, established in 1946, is a “non-profit membership association serving the military, government, industry, and academia as a forum for advancing professional knowledge and relationships in the fields of communications, information technology, intelligence, and security.”

The AFCEA Central Maryland Kickstarter program awards for initiatives in STEM-related disciplines. SLS received a grant for $4,949.25 and will be using the funds to purchase a class set of LEGO for Education Spike Prime sets (15). These sets will be used by Mrs. Whiteford with the Middle School students to continue to promote computer programming, critical thinking and complex problem solving. 

We would like to thank AFCEA Central Maryland (CMD),  Mr. David Fries, VP of Technology for the Board of Directors, and Mr. Kyle Cragg a school parent who is our AFCEA Central Maryland (CMD) liaison for the generous grant. #STEMatSLS
