ETHOS Innovation Center is proud to announce a $170,000 grant award by the Community Foundation of Elkhart County. The funds will support Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (STEM) activation in all schools in Elkhart County and beyond. The grant allows ETHOS to expand professional development programming, including the hiring of a new Director of STEM Education position to provide auxiliary support to area schools in science education, inquiry-based curriculum, and educator resources for teachers.
To meet the needs of a growing demand for STEM-skills related jobs, ETHOS has partnered with the Community Foundation of Elkhart County to deploy subject-matter experts to develop professional development programming, reinforced by evidence-based learning materials like Science Kits and e-learning modules to elevate STEM literacy in our community, and our region. We are confident the investment in top of mind, subject matter expertise in inquiry-based, argument-driven teaching methodologies are key to advancing STEM education and elevating our local talent as the future workforce.
The staff and leadership of ETHOS Innovation Center are grateful to the extraordinary leadership and foresight of the Community Foundation of Elkhart County for investing in the future of our community through STEM Education and skills-based training to support the jobs of tomorrow.
As a result of these special funds, and the generous support of our wonderful donors, we are proud to announce the following positions will be added to our team: Director of STEM Education and Science Teacher. If you or someone you know are qualified and interested in fulfilling our mission, please refer to the job descriptions for information on applying.
We are so grateful to the Community Foundation of Elkhart County and grateful for our donors who are contributing to our year-end fundraising efforts through the Full STEM Ahead campaign to make this happen. If you have not yet contributed, we urge you to join this movement and make a year-end gift toward this initiative during this season of joy and giving.
