This Spring, the Bradbury Science Museum Association (BSMA), Century Bank, and Los Alamos National Laboratory (TRIAD) have partnered to make 14 STEM education grants available!
Any certified K-12 teacher in the seven Northern New Mexico counties can apply for these grants to fund STEM learning activities for students that you would otherwise be unable to provide.
The application is easy to complete and provides you the opportunity to quickly acquire funding for your STEM classroom projects. Just tell us about how you want to promote STEM education in your classroom.
Want some ideas for what can you do with the money? Here are some examples of activities that were funded last spring:
|Barranca Elementary, Los Alamos||3D Blocks|
|Fairview Elementary, Espanola||Coding|
|Taos High School||Marshmallow Catapults, Bubbles and Hot Wheels|

- Grants are available for all schools in the following seven New Mexico counties: Los Alamos, Mora, Rio Arriba, Sandoval, San Miguel, Santa Fe and Taos.
