With the strange transition to online learning and less in-person STEAM activities happening, we are excited to announce that RAIN has helped to fund a new type of education.
The Bisbee Science Lab is using their grant to create a mobile science lab! This lab will travel throughout Cochise County, bringing informal STEAM education to rural children throughout the area!
At the moment, they’re looking for your input on what the name of this project should be; visit their website here and vote online!
Congratulations to the Bisbee Science Lab for their exciting new project and being awarded one of our largest grants for $50,000. We are so excited to see the outcome of this creative new endeavor.
During this time the organization has also been offering STEM kits (pictured above) to the community. If you’re in the Bisbee area and interested in receiving more learning activities for your children, you can register for your own kit online.
The Arizona Rural Activation and Innovation Network (RAIN) is funded by the National Science Foundation to oversee grant funding for informal STEM education projects in four rural Arizona communities: Cochise County, Graham and Greenlee County, the Verde Valley, and the Navapache/White Mountains region. RAIN acts as a resource for best practices in informal STEM program development and works to highlight effective STEM programs, employers and organizations across the state of Arizona.
