COLUMBUS, Ga. (WRBL) – Columbus State University’s Oxbow Meadows Environmental Learning Center was awarded a grant by The Wells Fargo Foundation to support STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) learning at Title I schools and will benefit several schools located close to the Learning Center.
The $4,000 grant will give students access to experiences that will make up for the inability to travel on field trips due to the coronavirus pandemic. The activities will include video elements that support the Georgia Standards of Excellence in this regard. In addition, this new project will help K-12 educators continue to engage students amid the coronavirus pandemic.
