Two local schools get STEM grants

Two local schools are among those receiving mini-grants from a partnership between Arizona Public Service and the Phoenix Suns pro basketball team.

The grants are going to hands-on projects that promote learning around science, technology, engineering and/or mathematics (STEM).

Twenty-four K-12 schools received grants of as much as $2,500 for a total of $50,000.

In the Prescott region, Mountain Institute JTED school in Prescott and the Franklin Phonetic Primary school in Prescott Valley earned grants.

The Mountain Institute will use its $2,500 grant to provide students with a state-of-the-art simulation-based laboratory called the "Virtual Medical Experience" that will include an untethered simulation patient.

Franklin Phonetic will use its $2,000 grant for classroom forensic investigations that use a forensic science kit to examine and analyze evidence.

Three Verde Valley schools also received grants.
