About this grant

This grant provides support to the Flint Community Schools for the newly formed Brownell Holmes STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) pod. A STEM facilitator will help develop and implement STEM curriculum, coordinate teacher and staff professional development, and work with community partners who can bring specialized STEM experiences to students. The STEM facilitator will also coordinate the purchase of supplies critical to a STEM curriculum, including tablet computers, science and engineering kits, and laboratory equipment, and will host engaging events for families and community partners to help create a sense of ownership of the STEM pod within the neighborhood.
