Savannah River Nuclear Solutions is accepting applications from local educators for its 2012 Innovative Teaching Mini Grants.
The annual program provides an opportunity for area educators to compete, by submitting grant proposals, for classroom supplies and equipment that will enhance and promote science, technology, engineering and math lesson plans.
Elementary and middle public school educators in seven counties (Aiken, Allendale, Bamberg, Barnwell and Edgefield counties in South Carolina, and Columbia and Richmond counties in Georgia) are eligible to receive grants in amounts of $500, $750 or $1,000.
Winners, and everyone who a submitted proposal, will be honored at a ceremony in April.
Applications were mailed directly to the eligible schools last week. Teachers can obtain applications from their school principal or SRNS Program Coordinator Gladys N. Moore, (803) 952-9450. Applications are also available and can be downloaded by visiting the SRS Web site: www.srs.gov/.
