MHTA’s ACE Leadership Alumni are partnering with Minnesota Computers for Schools (MCFS) to award a Computers to Classrooms grant.
The recipient will be a Minnesota K-12 STEM teacher who will have their choice of six Dell Optiplex or six Lenovo ThinkPad laptops. If you are interested in applying for the grant, the application is available as an offer at getSTEM-mn.
The ACE Leadership Alumni Committee is comprised of technology leaders from companies across Minnesota. Each member of the committee completed the year-long MHTA ACE Leadership program which develops and connects our region’s next generation of technology company leaders and assists in preparing them for the important roles they will play in making and keeping our region globally competitive.
The computers will be awarded to a Minnesota teacher who demonstrates innovation and leadership in the classroom. The purpose of the grant is to advance STEM education by providing computers to a classroom in need. Applications will be reviewed by members of the MHTA ACE Leadership Alumni Executive Committee.
