Grants are a financial reward given for a particular purpose. Grants can come from all sorts of sources such as federal government, private companies, and charities. Take a look around in your area for grants that might be available to support STEM activities. A great place to get started is to contact your school system’s education foundation, if applicable, and ask about grant opportunities for extracurricular educational activities.
