Fulda Educational Foundation Receives Grant

As the world grows into an ever increasing demand for efficiency, faster connectivity, and better technology, it all goes back to your roots, or in this case, the STEM’s.

What is STEM? STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math. This is a growing movement in schools where younger and older students are encouraged to explore new career paths and even hobbies in which can be affected by technology, medicine, economics, engineering, and other technical skills.

The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) announced a grant of $2,000 for the Fulda Educational Foundation. This money will go towards Fulda High School’s 8th Grade STEM programming.

“We are excited to put this generous grant to work for our students by broadening their exposure to STEM topics,” said Mike Pagel, Superintendent of Fulda Public Schools and principal of Fulda High School.

School representatives and students were also joined by State Representative Joe Schumacher.

“In a world where STEM jobs develop at an overwhelming rate, these kids will have more doors open to them because of the school’s program. They have bright futures to look forward to,” said Representative Schumacher.

PhRMA represents the country’s leading pharmaceutical research companies, which are devoted to researching medicines that enable patients to live long, healthy, and more productive lives. Since 2000, PhRMA companies have invested more than $1.1 trillion in new treatments and cures.
