Verizon Foundation Funds Family Engineering Training & Starter Kits for Detroit Public Schools

Friday, September 12th, 2014

Detroit Public Schools (DPS) received a $30,000 grant from Verizon Foundation  to promote Family Engineering. The grant was used to host a STEAM Teacher Workshop  in Fall 2013  and then to host a 1/2-day Family Engineering Teacher Workshop in Spring 2014.  DPS purchased 31 Family Engineering Kits to be distributed to teachers who both attended the Family Engineering Teacher Workshop and completed a Family Engineering application which outlined their plan to hold a Family Engineering event at their school.  A total of 16 schools attended the Spring 2014 workshop.  DPS will be hosting another training event to complete the Family Engineering Kit distribution.005 024 035 044
