Maverick Energy Solutions Partners with NextWaveSTEM to Expand STEM Education in Central and Southern Illinois
NextWaveSTEM is expanding its hands-on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) program to Central and Southern Illinois classrooms thanks to a grant from Maverick Energy Solutions.
Drones, robots, and 3D printers in the classroom allow students to build, code, play, and learn to make important connections to the real world. NextWaveSTEM curriculum is designed to support students in meeting the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and the Next Generation Science Standards and to foster 21st Century Skills.
In total, this grant is supporting 50 schools in accessing our programs at a very steep discount to help kickstart learning with the next wave of technologies in the classrooms. For $2500, schools receive curriculum, teacher training, and equipment to start STEM in-school or after-school programs.
“We are pleased to partner with NextWaveSTEM to bring this educational opportunity to more students and teachers,” said Karl Wrobel COO and Director. “We believe that inspiring young, bright people to pursue STEM education is essential to developing the next generation of engineers and scientists, as well as creating and sustaining strong and empowered communities.”
