Submitted by The Webster Five Foundation
The Webster Five Foundation donated $2,000 to Science from Scientists, a non-profit organization based in Bedford, to support their mission of expanding STEM literacy in the next generation. The grant will help fund the organization’s During-School Scientist-led STEM education for third through sixth grade students at five elementary schools in the Worcester Public school system.
Science from Scientists’ vision is to inspire students, ignite interest, and improve STEM competency with the goal of filling the workforce pipeline with talented, competent individuals.
“Science from Scientists is grateful for Webster Five’s generosity,” said Dr. Erika Ebbel Angle, Founder and Executive Director of Science from Scientists. “Webster Five’s donation gives children the opportunity to engage in hands-on, minds-on science experiences with real scientists who are positive STEM role models. Thank you for your support!”
“Webster Five is pleased to help Science from Scientists as they nurture and encourage STEM literacy among students,” said Don Doyle, President and CEO, Webster Five. “We’re excited to see the organization grow its programs within our area and continue to build our next generation of passionate scientists.”
