Grant Brings Texas Students Teachers New Technology in the Classroom

Helping teachers support and encourage their students in STEM is why we are excited for the opportunity to work with the recipients of the 2014 I Rock Math grant! United Way and Texas Instruments awarded a total of $50,000 to Dallas ISD’s Dallas Environmental Science Academy (DESA), Lancaster ISD’s Elsie Robertson Middle School, and Mesquite ISD’s Georgia W. Kimball Elementary for iPads and other tech equipment that students will use to enhance their math and science learning experience in the classroom. NMSI will provide teacher mentorship and training on how to best implement the technology in the classroom. Toni Schneider is one of the NMSI mentors who will be travelling to DESA and Elsie Robertson Middle School, and is honored to be a part of this new innovative collaboration. “At NMSI, we are committed to improving math and science education, and what better way than to incorporate technology? I’m really excited about heading out to these schools, where we will provide mentorship and training to the teachers around implementing technology effectively in the classroom to engage students. We know this is key to ensuring a brighter future in STEM for students.”
 
Congratulations to all three of these schools for earning such a tremendous reward! We look forward to working with your teachers and students.
