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.
The latest MEF grant application is now available online. Round 34 will fund innovative projects for the Fall Semester of 2019.
