STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) is a high priority for the District and for HEF. Since our inception, HEF has awarded more than 60 STEM grants and more than 80 technology grants for District initiatives.
In 2013, our Royal Bash Special Appeal, Magnifying the Power of STEM, provided hands-on STEM kits for elementary school classrooms and Rolling Robotics Labs for the junior high schools.
In 2014, our Royal Bash Special Appeal was STEM2: Boosting the Power of STEM Beyond the Classroom. We provided STEM materials for before and after-school programs and supported tutoring in STEM subjects at HHS.
