RED CLOUD INDIAN SCHOOL WORKS TO PROMOTE STEM EDUCATION WITH GRANT FROM THE TOYOTA USA FOUNDATION

Here, from Native News Network.  A quote from the article:

“We are proud to support Red Cloud Indian School and the important work they are doing to prepare students to pursue STEM degrees in college,” said Michael Rouse, Vice President of Diversity, Philanthropy & Community Affairs and President of Toyota USA Foundation.  “Toyota is deeply committed to supporting the next generation of America’s leaders in mathematics, science, engineering and environmental science, and we look forward to seeing Red Cloud Indian School – and the students they serve – make an even bigger impact in the years ahead.”

“The lab provides a near year-round outdoor learning environment for our students,” says Ted Hamilton, superintendent of schools. “It’s one thing to learn about biology in a textbook, but when you can get a student out of their seat and their hands in the dirt—that’s when you inspire a student to pursue a career in a STEM field—and that’s something we are in critical need of on the reservation.”
