Previous Grant Recipients
In September of 2012, the EEF Board of Directors announced their support for the District's implementation of the Gateway to Technology (GTT) program at both of Elmbrook's Middle Schools. Elmbrook already is a leader with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) curriculum at the High School through its offering of the Project Lead the Way (PLTW) program. PLTW courses benefit students that elect to take these classes. The GTT Foundation Units will be integrated into core curriculum which benefits all students by emphasizing critical thinking, creativity, innovation and real-world problem solving. Additional GTT programs will also be made available through elective coursework to extend the curriculum for those with a passion for STEM topics.
This program would not be made available without EEF support. The
estimated project cost is $156,000. We would love to see GTT in
Elmbrook as early as the 2013-14 school year; however, the Foundation
will require support from the Elmbrook community in order to make this
program a reality. Businesses, residents, parents, etc. with an
interest in helping bring this program to life in Elmbrook should
contact the Foundation at
email@example.com. For more information about the STEM Grant program click here.
