Concentrating on STEM Studies

O&R’s President and CEO Tim Cawley dropped by Jennifer LaBier’s third-grade class at Stony Point Elementary School yesterday to get a first-hand look at STEM-oriented projects funded by O&R’s STEM Classroom Grants program.

What he saw was impressive.


“It’s not just the application of science and technology in these projects that is so striking,” Cawley said. “It’s more the knowledge that the individual students have. They’re obviously very much at home with some challenging concepts. That comes from engagement, enthusiasm and a real understanding of the science.”


The winners of this year’s $35,000 in O&R STEM Classroom Grants will be publicly announced next week.
