The CCU grants will help fund a wide variety of programs illustrating the creativity and commitment teachers bring to their classrooms and communities.
Projects receiving grants include developing water filtration and testing systems, community sustainability programs, school-based gardens and green spaces, communication technologies and peer-based socialization for special education students, and robotics programs, among many others.
