Exxon-Mobil Grant

Over the past two school years, the Exxon Mobil Corporation has awarded Timberlane two grants to foster STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) projects in the schools, which will then nurture an appreciation of STEM throughout the student’s lifetime.  The grant money, totaling $3, 000 over the two years, is being used to partially fund the work of science symposiums at the high school and a STEM camp for 4th grade students.  The science symposiums allow students to present their independent research in a style similar to what is done at the collegiate and professional levels.  Students engage with one another and with the public to discuss their ideas, research and future inquiry projects, fostering a sense of a scientific think tank in which ideas are further developed.  The STEM camp is designed to have fourth grade students explore scientific concepts and engineer take home devices, while working with high school aged mentors.  Therefore the goal of the camp is the solidify a love of STEM in the elementary student while demonstrating that this interest continues well into high school.
