How One District Connected the Dots: Several years ago, the Gulf Coast Community Foundation (GCCF) in Sarasota approached Florida’s Sarasota County Schools, wanting to help the district think differently than it had in the past. Namely, the foundation wanted to help get kids engaged in STEM careers and linking enhanced classroom experiences through real-world business and community involvement.
GCCF originally set aside a $100,000 STEM-Smart grant to meet the specific program objectives. As part of that mission, Sarasota County Schools would not only need a way to get more students interested in STEM careers, but it would also have to create an environment where pupils could get more collaborative, integrate sophisticated technology and become team-oriented as they learned.
