More than 80 projects have been chosen by Savannah River Nuclear Solutions to receive a share of $50,000 in 2009 Innovative Teaching Mini Grants to be distributed by the Savannah River Site contractor.
The winners were announced this morning.
A committee reviewed 193 grant proposals submitted this year for the program, which recognizes and supports innovative teaching methods by funding projects that enhance elementary and middle school science, mathematics and technology programs.
Educators from all Central Savannah River Area public elementary and middle schools are eligible to apply for grants in one of three categories: $500, $750 or $1,000. SRNS is committed to supporting its education partners by sponsoring programs that facilitate the delivery of math, science and technology curricula, while increasing educational opportunities for students in the CSRA.
All applicants will be honored at a reception on Thursday, April 30, 5:30-7:30 p.m., Newberry Hall, 117 Newberry Street, Aiken, SC, where awards will officially be presented.
