2014 Mini Grant Winners 0

Dave Holland
Dave was awarded a $200 mini grant to purchase electrical supplies such as wiring, receptacles, and switches. Dave’s Mountain Home students, along with community mentors, are building a tiny house as a shelter for those who cannot afford a traditional home. Students have also reached out to the community to obtain other investors. Dave’s curriculum for this project also involves systems thinking (from William & Mary), as well as Paul’s Reasoning Model.

Tracie Ingram
Tracie’s Vallivue students will be working with 2 new Lego (TM) WeDo Robotics kits. Her $400 mini-grant will enable students to use motors, sensors, and Legos with software that also interacts with the online programming software Scratch. Tracie is excited that students will be increasing their engineering and design skills, especially that failure is merely an opportunity for further test and redesign.
