WNY STEM came back to their 3D Prosthetic Hand host site, Health Sciences Charter School on Tuesday, October 24th to celebrate the grant they were recently awarded.
New York Assembly Member Crystal Peoples-Stokes joined Laura Perloff, Director of Advocacy and Strategic Alliances of the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), to announce a $2,000 grant for WNY STEM to support our programs.
“With more and more of our daily lives being intertwined with technology, a STEM/STEAM education is even more critical today. Whether developing mobile apps, drones and autonomous cars, designing computer programs, operating manufacturing machinery, or building human appendages like the students from WNY STEM recently did, understanding the basics is a necessity. It’s imperative that we properly educate our workforce of the next generation in order to keep our region’s future competitive and bright. I applaud Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America for this investment towards STEM curriculum, and congratulate the students for doing excellent work and positively impacting people’s lives,” stated Assemblywoman Crystal D. Peoples-Stokes.
"The biopharmaceutical industry is committed to investing in future innovators who will keep America at the forefront of new breakthroughs," said Laura Perloff. "Innovative extra-curricular programming like the programs provided by WNY STEM are inspiring tomorrow's STEM leaders. The skills that participants gain from the hands-on experience curriculum will help prepare them for future careers in the STEM fields."
“WNY STEM is honored to accept this STEM Talent Pipeline Grant,” said Cherie Messore. “Encouraging STEM learners to pursue science, technology, engineering, and math careers is central to our mission. Support like this will aid WNY STEM's efforts to collaborate with businesses, schools, and like-minded organizations to facilitate rich learning experiences to inspire all learners and the next generation workforce.”
