The Nokomis School STEAM Studio has received the Best Buy Canada School Tech Grant, which provides $10,000 to purchase technology for use in the school. Nokomis is one of 13 elementary schools across Canada to receive this grant in 2018.
The STEAM Studio is an after-school club started by Nokomis School teacher, Erin Richard. The club is offered to all Nokomis students in Kindergarten to Grade 8. Every Monday since the fall of 2017, the STEAM Studio meets to take part in different challenges related to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM). Ms. Richard applied for the grant this past April, and the school was presented with their cheque on June 21.
Congratulations, Nokomis School!
