We invite you to participate in the 3rd Annual MEF Walk-a-Thon fundraiser! Participants in the "Better Health, Better Minds" event will be walking around the Merrillville High School complex on Saturday, October 12, 2019. We have sponsorship opportunities, too!
The grants for Round 34 were awarded in May of 2019. Eleven grants totaling $6,772.94 were awarded to enhance learning experiences for Merrillville students.
Using "Crazy Traits" kits, purchased via a Merrillville Education Foundation grant, students developed a model for how probability influences genetic variation. They discovered how genetically diverse the population can be even with just 14 traits.
Every month, we are creating activities and projects to promote kindness, respect, empathy, and unity throughout the MIS building. We celebrate every month with the “Act of Kindness MVP” award.
Approximately 100 families attended and participated in a variety of STEM activities. The purpose of the program was to introduce our parents to the engineering process and the new Makerspace Room at MIS.
