CIRCLEVILLE — The Pickaway Pathways Creative Learning Program has received a $5,000 grant through the Ohio STEM Learning Network’s STEM Classroom Grant Program.
The money will go to the purchase of drones. Using drone technology, students will master the credentials needed for graduation using the Ohio Department of Education-aligned workbook to target academic areas while incorporating the learning and STEM technology.
The Ohio STEM Learning Network Classroom Grant Program, new this year, was funded by Battelle to help foster the growth of the Ohio STEM Learning Network as a public-private partnership between the non-profit research institute and the state.
Pathways, housed at the Mound Street campus of the Pickaway-Ross Career and Technology Center in Circleville, serves nearly 60 students from the Circleville City School District, Logan Elm, Teays Valley and local Westfall School Districts; and local schools in Amanda-Clearcreek in Fairfield County.
The ESC, which will serve as the financial agent for the grant, provides high quality services to schools in Pickaway County: Circleville City School District; the local school districts of Logan Elm, Teays Valley and Westfall; and Pickaway-Ross Career and Technology Center.
