The Education Blueprints Association targeted 14 schools districts across the United States for the LEGO Smart Schools Grant. In their words:
“Students need to not only master science, technology, engineering, and math skills but also be given the opportunity to integrate this STEM knowledge with critical-thinking, teamwork, and creative problem-solving skills. This will help them form the necessary characteristics for becoming active participants in our ever-changing world.”
The Olympia School District was just selected as one of the “14 regional centers of influence” for this program.
