Battelle is intended to reach more than over 25,000 Central Ohio students during the next year.

For this year’s annual Battelle STEM Grant Program, $504,000 has been awarded to new or expanded learning programs in Central Ohio. Providing more access for all students to experience quality science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education is Battelle’s top philanthropic priority. To date, the program has awarded more than $4 million.

“As Battelle pushes toward its goal to reach one million students annually with STEM experiences by 2025, we know we can’t do it alone,” said Lou Von Thaer, President and CEO of Battelle. “The investments we make today with our community partners will reach students wherever they are over the coming year.” 

Through the Battelle STEM Grant Program, Central Ohio organizations expand STEM learning experiences outside of the school classroom and reach students underserved by traditional opportunities.

“Learning can happen anywhere,” said Wes Hall, Vice President of Education and Philanthropy. “This summer, out-of-school experiences will help students regain learning and these grants will help our partners to scale to reach even more students.” 

The 14 out-of-classroom learning activities funded by Battelle are:

Girls in Science Day by Capital University: One-hundred middle school girls from Columbus City Schools will spend a day doing hands-on science workshops with Capital University faculty and student ambassadors. Students will explore STEM fields and careers and establish mentorship relationships.

Science-to-go kits for Rosemore Middle School by Capital University

Science-to-go kits will be created and distributed by biologist Dr. Kimberly Heym to 8th grade science students at the nearby Rosemore Middle School in Whitehall. In coordination with their classroom lessons, students will use the kits at home to complete scientific experiments including creating a geologic timeline with Jell-O layers and extracting DNA from strawberries.

STEM Enrichment Programs Make Learning RICH! by Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resources Center
