Dominion Energy presented a check for $10,000 to Elementary Engineers at the College of Charleston, a new program led by Laura Brock, Rachael James, and Hall West. Elementary Engineers offers free engineering summer camp opportunities for local elementary school students as well as teacher training and school year support to implement the Engineering is Elementary (EiE) curriculum within local elementary school classrooms.
Over the summer, Elementary Engineers offered the free engineering summer camp to nearly 100 elementary-aged children in North Charleston and Charleston and trained approximately 20 teachers in the EiE curriculum to be implemented locally within elementary classrooms during the 2016-2017 school year. Elementary Engineers has also received funding from the American Honda Foundation.
