CHS Science Teacher receives National STEM grant

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Society for Science & the Public announced last Friday grants totaling $120,000 have been awarded to 35 middle and high school science teachers in 23 states across the country to support STEM research activities in their classrooms. Each teacher will receive a grant of up to $5,000. Carrie Cox, a science teacher at Chamberlain High School, received a $4,000 STEM research grant to purchase a variety of data collection probes and a digital centrifuge. She will be supporting 100 students who are 50% low income and 50% Native American. The closest major city is Omaha, Neb., which is four hours away. Carrie encourages her students to consider what changes they want to see in the world when they are selecting a project topic. She aspires to create a devoted research course in the next five years so her students would have more time to devote to more advanced projects. Carrie is also part of the Society’s Advocate Grant Program.
