Ignited Awarded Early Childhood STEM Challenge Grant
June 20, 2017 – Ignited is excited to announce that we have been selected to receive an Early Childhood STEM Challenge grant from 100Kin10. This grant, awarded to ten organizations across the country, seeks out visionary teams who can identify and incubate “moonshots” enabling teachers to create active STEM learning environments for students in grades P-3. We are thrilled this award funds the development of Spark Early Education STEM (SparkEES), a new program to improve 2nd and 3rd grade STEM instruction.
