(St. Louis Post-Dispatch) Boeing provides grant to support East St. Louis STEAM program

Boeing has awarded the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center with a $75,000 grant to support K-12 after-school STEAM+Ag curriculum with authentic research experiences (AREs) at the Jackie Joyner-Kersee Center in East St. Louis, IL.

“With Boeing’s help, we are creating a hands-on STEAM+AG education and work force development pipeline from kindergarten to adult that provides opportunities for people to develop marketable skills in urban agriculture, innovation, and entrepreneurship while learning about the importance of food production and improving their own communities’ access to nutrition,” said Kristine Callis-Duehl, PhD, the Sally and Derick Driemeyer director of education research and outreach at the Danforth Center.
