EnergyPartners Fund Announces STEM Grants, Enrichment Programs

The EnergyPartners Fund is proud to announce its fifth annual STEM grant program.

Teachers, schools and nonprofit organizations with engaging ideas that inspire students to achieve in science, technology, engineering and math are encouraged to apply.

Previous grant awards have included support for robotics teams, classroom lab supplies, iPads, SMART technologies, math superbowls, AAUW’s Tech Trek science camp for girls, Maker Faire projects, Techsploration and science field trips.

Grant applications are due Sept. 15 at by clicking here.

The EnergyPartners Fund has invested $650,000 over the past five years in science, technology, engineering and math education benefiting more than 50,000 public and private students in kindergarten through high school, in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and Ventura counties.

In addition to STEM grants, the EnergyPartners Fund is also helping local students discover the power of next generation science through a series of hands-­on, enrichment programs aligned with the goals and objectives of the common core.

All programs are offered at no charge to participants. Reservations are required.

The EnergyPartners Fund is a collaboration of local private sector companies, professionals, business partners, community champions and individuals, who rely on STEM-­‐educated talent to run and grow their businesses, and are joining together to support the communities in which they live, operate and prosper.

EnergyPartners is a committee advised fund with the Santa Barbara Foundation, which maximizes its investment and service potential. For more information about the EnergyPartners Fund and its STEM student programs and grant opportunities, click here.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
