Charlevoix-Emmet ISD Among 16 Schools Awarded Funding for STEM Programs

Sixteen Michigan schools will get money to develop Great Lakes-based STEM programs for their students. One of them is the Charlevoix-Emmet Intermediate School District.

More than $205,000 will be split between different districts and educational partnerships. The grants build on Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s educational budget proposal.

Schools will be able to offer freshwater literacy programs and give students access to real-world stem experiences.

“This learning will give teachers that lenses of what we’re teaching in the classroom and then give them some real strategies to take that learning that they’re getting in this professional learning opportunity, to take back to their classroom and translate to the kids, so the kids can then take their learning, and apply it to real world issues as well,” said Scott Koziol, assistant superintendent for instruction at Charlevoix-Emmet ISD.

Charlevoix-Emmet will get $20,000 in grant money. The grants were announced in connection to Michigan’s Great Lakes and Freshwater Week.
