Bobcat Company has continued its “Doosan Discovery Grant” initiative by awarding six grants totaling $4,000 to North Dakota and Minnesota middle and high-school classrooms for projects focusing on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
The “Doosan Discovery Grant,” which is named for Bobcat Company’s parent organization, Doosan, and sponsored by Bobcat, supports educational enrichment and classroom development in STEM areas. Accredited elementary, middle and high schools in North Dakota and Minnesota — located where Bobcat has offices or production facilities — were encouraged to apply for this year’s grant.
Schools receiving this year’s Doosan Discovery grants are:
Schools and classrooms selected will use the grant to help with a variety of projects dealing with science, technology, engineering or mathematics. Creating a rainwater collection system to irrigate a school garden and constructing circuits that will transfer sound and energy are just a couple of projects that are planned by grant recipients. Projects will be completed during the 2015-16 academic school year and will be designed to improve, advance and enrich student learning.
“Bobcat Company and Doosan are proud to continue our support of STEM-related programs by providing support at all educational levels,” said Rich Goldsbury, president of Bobcat Company and Doosan in North America. “STEM areas are vital to the future of our company and to the communities where we do business.”
