Congratulations to Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) educators who are recipients of grant awards from Florida Power & Light (FPL) Company’s Teacher Grant Program. The awards fund classroom energy and engineering projects, such as solar-powered ovens, water-powered cars and wind generators, as part of a focus on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

Since 2010, the Teacher Grant Program has financed a variety of STEM and energy projects, with grants ranging from $500 to $1,000 per project.

“At FPL, we are working together with the communities we serve to make Florida an even better place to raise a family and do business,” said Pamela Rauch, vice president of Development and External Affairs for FPL. “For the past five years, FPL has been committed to enriching STEM education experiences, and continues to invest in science and math programs for our students. STEM programs prepare today’s students for exciting and well-paid jobs in the future.”
