A project to assist rural schools with science, technology and math instruction backed by Emporia State faculty recently received a nearly $200,000 grant. The project, called FAN – STEM 1 (Fredonia, Altoona-Midway, Neodesha- Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics-Initiative), will provide funding to improve the math and science instruction of elementary teachers working in high-need areas of Kansas.

STEM News from Emporia State University
Kansas teachers are working with students in rural parts of the state this summer to increase student learning in key areas. All totaled, more than 60 teachers met with 150 students in Dodge City, Fredonia, Independence, and Neodesha in late May and early June for MASTERS – Math and Science Teaching Excellence in Rural Schools. MASTERS is a nearly $200,000 grant partnering Emporia State, Pittsburg State and the Southwest Plains Regional Service Center.
