Bobcat awards $4,000 in grants to support STEM programs
This year's Doosan Discovery Grants award winners were Simle Middle School and Cathedral School in Bismarck, North Dakota; Liberty Middle School in West Fargo, North Dakota; Milnor Public School in Milnor, North Dakota; and the Litchfield Public Schools in Litchfield, Minnesota.
“Bobcat Co. and Doosan are proud to continue our support of STEM-related programs by providing support at all educational levels,” Rich Goldsbury, president of Bobcat Co. and Doosan in North America, said. “STEM areas are vital to the future of our company and to the communities where we do business.”
The schools were chosen from an application process. Winning schools will use the funds on projects like designing rain barrels for a school garden and building circuits to transfer sound and energy. Bobcat's grant program is part of an increasing national focus on increasing education in the STEM fields, which have been linked to national competitiveness and in-demand career fields.
