STEM learning partnership with CPS gets $600,000 federal grant
U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-Dist. 3) said on Friday that the National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded the Learning Partnership from Western Springs a grant totaling nearly $600,000 for an ongoing science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education program with Chicago Public Schools (CPS).
“As a former teacher, one of only a dozen engineers in Congress and co-chair of the House STEM Ed Caucus, I continue to be a strong advocate for improving STEM education at all levels,” Lipinski said. "I believe it is among the most important steps we can take to ensure that America remains the most technologically innovative country in the world and our young people receive an education that will allow them to succeed in the jobs of today and tomorrow. I applaud the Learning Partnership for their work in this field and for being yet another small-business success story in the Third Congressional District.”
The Learning Partnership is a small business that focuses on bringing together STEM researchers, teachers and students to improve the quality of STEM education. They are involved in a variety of curriculum development and professional development projects.
