In September 2014, FEPS approved a Science and Engineering Grant that benefited all 6th graders in Eden Prairie Schools.
Science and Engineering Grant: Beth Pederson (Prairie View), Brent Pottinger (Oak Point), Brent Bovitz (Cedar Ridge), Stephen Gunlavson (Eagle Heights), Kay Rosheim (Forest Hills), and Paula Plumer (Eden Lake) were awarded $27,465 as part of a Science and Engineering Grant for sixth graders. This grant will provide two Renewable Energy and Green City Challenge Kits to enhance the LEGO robotics science lessons for each of our six elementary schools’ 6th grade programs.
“We are so appreciative of the ongoing support that FEPS provides for our students and teachers. This teacher driven project will continue to enhance and expand the opportunities for each Eden Prairie Elementary student to learn engineering principles embedded in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) standards through problem solving and creation. Our teachers continue to do great work to personalize learning for students and this collaborative project will continue to build on that energy.” ~ Josh Swanson, Assistant Superintendent
