COLUMBUS, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 07/10/14 -- Battelle's non-profit subsidiary, BattelleEd, has won more than $2 million from Ohio's Straight A Fund to manage education networks and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning.
Successful ongoing management and support of the Ohio STEM Learning Network played a key role in earning the 501c3 this work. BattlelleEd also manages a range of other STEM programs including the Tennessee STEM Innovation Network and the national STEMx network.
Now, as a partner on three winning proposals to Ohio's Straight A Fund, BattelleEd will expand its operations. The winning proposals, led by a range of top Ohio education organizations, total more than $28 million in support for Ohio schools.
"We believe STEM education is the best way for children to develop the knowledge and skills they need to succeed," said Aimee Kennedy, Vice-President of Education, STEM Learning and Philanthropy at Battelle. "Thanks to Ohio's Straight A Fund, schools and teachers across Ohio will gain new access to this groundbreaking movement in education."
