Crandon High School among those rewarded by WPS Foundation
The winners of the 2012-2013 Innovative Educator Grants have been announced by the program's sponsor, the Wisconsin Public Service Foundation. The program, now in its sixth year, awards innovative teaching programs in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math. Crandon High School, with its solar-powered wildlife camera project, was one of the recipients. Projects at other winning schools included, but weren't limited to, electric use monitoring, plant tissue culture study, robotics an aerospace and weather balloon project, stream monitoring and more.
This year, 32 applications were received and 14 projects were awarded. Middle school and high school educators whose school districts were within the Wisconsin Public Service (WPS) service area were encouraged to apply for up to $1,000 grants. An independent panel of judges from the energy education field selected the finalists for WPS.
The WPS Foundation is funded by corporation shareowners and NOT electric or natural gas customers.
