WYOMING. – Ms. Cheryl Travis, a computer science teacher at Pinedale Middle School in Pinedale, Wyoming, has been awarded a grant by the Association of American Educators Foundation (AAEF). The grant will be used to purchase Micro:bit Micro-Controllers.
“My more advanced students can check out a Micro:bit on their own and can produce even more advanced projects than we otherwise have supplies for,” noted Ms. Travis in her application. “I will be able to better differentiate for my students by allowing them the option to work with a partner, or work independently.”
AAEF is pleased to support the nation’s educators and their vision for better serving their students and their educational community. This competitive program invites all educators to submit their concepts, projects, and activities that will expand learning opportunities for their students.
“Ms. Travis’ submission impressed our judges because of her commitment to improving access to learning materials for her students,” said AAE Senior Professional Programs Manager Melissa Pratt. “The national scholarship and grant program is one of the most important ways we encourage and spotlight professional excellence today and invest in a brighter educational future for all learners.”
The AAE Foundation National Teacher Scholarship and Classroom Grant Program are open to all educators. Applications for a newly added cycle of COVID-19 Relief Scholarships and Grants for educators affected by pandemic-related school closures are now being accepted and evaluated on a rolling basis through May 15, 2020. Application and information can be found online.
