Public schools throughout the territory are set to benefit from the awarding of close to $35,000 in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) grants by the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands (CFVI)! Educators were required to submit proposals that would enhance students’ learning and grow their talents through projects that offered hands-on experience in a wide array of disciplines, including robotics, cyber security, computer programming, and integrating STEM with the arts.

The grants were made possible by AT&T Foundation and the Children’s Trust of the Virgin Islands. The Virgin Islands Next Generation Network applauds the awardees, their students, the Virgin Islands Department of Education and CFVI for generating creators for the 21st century and beyond.
