DEXTER - Dexter Regional High School received a Science and Math Improvement Grant from the Toshiba America Foundation in New York City in the amount of $10,000 for a project entitled “Portal Research Project”. The project was created by Ms. Regina Herrick, the classroom teacher.
The mission of the Toshiba America Foundation is to contribute to the quality of science and mathematics education in U.S. communities by investing in projects designed by classroom teachers to improve instruction in their own classrooms.
Each year, Toshiba America Foundation selects 100 to 150 of the most interesting classroom projects in grades K-12 for grant recognition. Teachers from throughout the United States apply by submitting a project idea and lesson plan. Winners are selected based on the quality of the project idea and its potential for increasing student learning of some aspect of the regular K-12 science or math curriculum at their school.
Over the years, teachers and students have used the grants to make the classroom experience both exciting and instructive. Funded projects have included alternative energy experiments including solar cars and a bio-diesel school bus, studies in the science of sound and the creation of handmade musical instruments and a project to study and curtail local air pollution, just to name a few. K-12 science and math teachers in public and nonprofit schools are invited to apply.
