Post Date:07/10/2017 9:00 AM

Tempe’s Kid Zone Enrichment Program received two AzCASE and Cox Communications 2017 STEM Grants this year for its LEGO Robotics and Hex Bug Club applications. These grants are awarded across the state to programs that encourage and promote informal STEM learning opportunities in out-of-school programs.

Kid Zone’s Curry/Connolly location won $1,500 for its LEGO Robotics concept, which will consist of robotics kits that youth can use to explore engineering and design. The Fuller Kid Zone location won $1,500 for its Hex Bug Club idea, which will allow kids to study the nature of insects and the role they play in the ecosystem.

Grant amounts range from $500 to $1,500 and more than 75 applications were submitted from programs across the state. For more information on the grant program, click here.
