ACHS awarded one of 197 TVA STEM grants

The Tennessee Valley Authority, in partnership with Bicentennial Volunteers Inc., a TVA retiree organization, announced this week the award of $800,000 in grants to educators in public schools to develop science, technology, engineering, and math education projects all across the Tennessee Valley.

Anderson County High School was one of the schools to receive one of the 197 grants that were approved.

The competitive STEM classroom grant program, operated in partnership with Battelle, received more than 600 grant applications from across TVA’s seven-state service territory.

Across the Valley, educators submitted projects large and small, to further STEM education initiatives in the classroom — both in person and virtual.

“Despite the new challenges Valley teachers faced in 2020, they are still focused on providing the best STEM education possible and have adjusted to new ways of teaching,” said Community Engagement Senior Program Manager Rachel Crickmar.
