North Side, Valerie Orfield awarded STEM Grant from TVA

TVA Grant


North Side Elementary and STEM Teacher Valerie Orfield were awarded a $1,000 grant from the Tennessee Valley Authority, in partnership with Bicentennial Volunteers, Inc., a TVA retiree organization, to develop science, technology, engineering, and math education projects to help spark student interest in future careers in STEM-related fields.

Orfield received a $1,000 grant that afforded her the opportunity to purchase two Engineering is Elementary modules: Seeing Animal Sounds and Designing Plant Packages. These modules include storybooks with a setting in another country, teacher guides, and masters for diverse learners. They also include consumables and non-consumables for an engineering project that solves a problem posed in the storybook.
