[POCATELLO, ID / 8 JUNE 2020] – Idaho State University’s College of Technology announced today it received a grant for $10,000 from Bayer Fund, which will be used to support their upcoming online Ignite Their Future STEM summer camp.

“With so many activities and events being canceled due to COVID-19, we are excited to still be able to offer the Ignite Their Future Online STEM Summer Camp this year. Bayer's support is helping us continue to provide an engaging STEM learning opportunity for 5th-12th grade students and K-12 educators in addition to increasing the awareness and importance of STEM education,” said Katie Leishman, POWER Careers Advocate and STEM Camp Coordinator at the College of Technology.

This grant will not only provide support to our organization, but also the community we serve by allowing us to reach out to more students and educators and broaden the impact the camp will have.

“Throughout the years, the grants given through Bayer Fund have helped strengthen our communities across the United States,” said Al Mitchell, President of Bayer Fund. “We’re proud to be able to provide support to develop programs that help combat challenges such as food insecurity, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education and support services to patients and families managing an illness or disease.”
