Mini-Grant Recipients - February 20, 2019

Congratulations to our mini-grant recipients! CEF awarded 2 mini-grants of $250 and 2 mini-grants of $500 for projects in the Currituck County Schools. The grants were awarded to Judy Bulkley, Child Nutrition Manager at Shawboro Elementary, for a Point of Sale register laser barcode scanner. This will allow meal lines to move faster and give children more time to eat their meals. Cindy Walker, of Currituck County Middle School, received a grant to purchase supplies for "CCMS Makerspace" that would include simple tools and materials that will help build their Makerspace program. The core principles of a Makerspace are having a mindset that you can create something out of nothing, that you can solve problems with critical thinking and creativity, and that knowledge is a consequence of experience. Valerie Person, of Currituck County High School, received a grant to purchase supplies for "Not Your Mother’s Flashcards." The students will use Merge Cubes to create their own 3D holograms based on the SAT tone words and Latin and Greek roots by making VR (virtual reality) and AR (augmented reality) flashcards. Anita Rubino, of Currituck County High School, received a grant to purchase an oxy/acetylene soldering kit for the Metalsmithing Program. The students will learn hot connect processes of connecting metals. Several other applicants were matched with community partners and other resources who were able to provide supplies to meet their project goals in the form of curriculum support and equipment loans. The CEF will offer a fall 2019 grant cycle to support additional projects in Currituck County Schools.
