GUILFORD SCIENCE TEACHERS WIN $11,000 IN GRANTS
Three Guilford County teachers have more funding for lab equipment and to support a healthy living program after winning grants from the Burroughs Wellcome Fund. The North Carolina-based nonprofit organization awarded grants totaling about $11,000 to Aebeyo Abraha at Smith High, Katheryn Cooper of The Early College at Guilford, and Claudia Walker of Murphey Traditional Academy.
Abraha, a chemistry teacher and science department chairman at Smith High, will receive $4,492 for new lab equipment, sensors and training for teachers on how to use the new materials, according to a news release from Guilford County Schools. With the project, students will collect data and form scientific conclusions based on their experiments.
