The BR STEM Network is a collaborative partnership among community partners that is helping inspire and prepare all BR youth to succeed, lead and innovate in STEM fields and in any career path they chose. Led by the Foundation for East Baton Rouge School System and representatives from the East Baton Rouge Parish School System, the local higher education system, community organizations, employers and STEM institutions, BR STEM is dedicated to addressing STEM at all ages throughout their lives and in all places - in schools, out-of-school time, professional development, work-based learning, mentoring and volunteering, and events.
The Foundation for East Baton Rouge School System is seeking proposals from educators in elementary, middle and high schools in East Baton Rouge Parish School System to implement high-quality, innovative STEM programs.
Funding to support projects in classrooms, across grade levels or even school-wide is available through a generous grant from ExxonMobil. Grants will be made available to classroom teachers or to schools. Grant awards may range from $250-$10,000 per project. Projects must be innovative and have potential for replication in other schools in East Baton Rouge Parish School System. Projects should focus on increasing student interest and engagement in STEM.
