Four Local Classrooms Receive Grants to Fund STEM Projects

Doosan-Bobcat of Fargo presented a check for $500 to fund a miniature escape room project at Liberty Middle School

WEST FARGO, N.D. — Four schools in the metro are getting grants from Doosan-Bobcat to help promote STEM projects.

A seventh grade math class at Liberty Middle School was one of the four area classrooms to receive a check for $500.

The award will allow the class to fund a miniature escape room project.

Teachers at Liberty say that the students feel inspired that outside companies care about their school projects.

“Our students love being able to feel that industries in our area support what they are doing,”  said Holly Erickson, math teacher at Liberty Middle School.  “It makes our curriculum come to life, so allowing professionals to come into our classroom to honor them and talk to them allows them to feel that they’re older than 12-years-old or 13-years-old.”

Classrooms at Discovery Middle School and Centennial Elementary in Fargo and Cheney Middle School in West Fargo were also recognized.
