"Thank you so much for the $250 Lightning Grant! I had a blast choosing what to spend it on for the benefit of my students. I landed on creating individual STEM boxes for the kids to enjoy. They had a blast creating, inventing, building, and problem solving! And the best part is that this is something that can be used over and over again, year after year. Like the old saying: a gift that keeps on giving."
-Jenny Taylor, BCSC Teacher
