August 24, 2017 – The IEEE Science Kits for Public Libraries Grant is offering up to $2,000 in funding to public libraries in the Michigan and Wisconsin area for the development of circulating math and science collections for pre-university students (K-12). The grant seeks to be a catalyst for educating students about how math and science are used for the benefit of humanity and to provide seed money for creation of library programs that will make a lasting impression. The IEEE Science Kits for Public Libraries Grant is offered by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
Past grants have allowed several Midwestern libraries to develop science kit circulating collections and give students access to prepared experiments and science materials that they might not encounter in the traditional classroom. Additionally, these libraries have created educational programs that allow students to conduct experiments at the library with the guidance of a librarian. This is a program of IEEE-Region 4 (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers).
