Tabernacle receives $2000 STEM Grant from Walmart

Dionne Currie-Hunsucker and the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Team at Tabernacle Elementary School have received a $2000 STEM grant from the Walmart Community Grants Team. The grant will allow Tabernacle to purchase consumable goods that will be used in the upstart of the STEM lab at the school.

The school had been able to borrow from old science kits that had many non-consumable items such as scales, blocks, flashlights, planting materials, and other items, but still had a need for consumables such as seeds, baking soda, dish detergent, vinegar, cooking oil, Borax, balloons, pipe cleaners, rock salt, etc.

The STEM lab was opened up for parents to come discover what hands-on learning was being introduced through the lab. Parent and students alike have sent many recycled items such as soda and water bottles, paper towel cardboard tubes, tissue boxes, egg cartons, newspapers, and even specific types of rocks, fossils, snake skins, and other environmental treasures.

The sustainability of a project such as the STEM lab takes many avenues and Tabernacle is thankful for the generosity of the Asheboro Walmart to help fund the hands-on learning that will impact students for the benefit of our greater community.

Upon the receipt of the grant, Tabernacle Principal Ceretha Mitchell said, “I am so pleased with our STEM team and all their hard work!”
