Gwinnett high school get grants for STEM education

Gwinnett County’s Lanier High School has received two grants totaling $17,500 to assist students learning science, technology, engineering and math, district officials announced last week.

The State Farm Foundation gave $15,000 and the Nordson Foundation contributed $2,500 to the school’s STEM programs.

The State Farm grant will be used for the high school’s robotics program in its Center for Design and Technology (CDAT). The Nordson grant will be used to establish a robotics tournament.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported last year about students at Lanier high and middle schools working to get more girls interested in STEM coursework.
