2018 WW + Goizueta Microgrant Projects
Metro Atlanta WW Teaching Fellows were able to expand their classroom learning experiences this school year through the WW + Goizueta Microgrants. The microgrants, established in 2015, allow for Fellows to attend or present at professional conferences, buy teaching materials for their classrooms, or complete community-based service learning projects.
Some of this year’s projects included innovative uses of sensors and probes, tablets, 3D printers, and a farming robot. Fellows were also able to use resources from past and current grant cycles to start community gardens and after-school drone clubs. (see photos above)
The microgrants benefit not only the Fellows, but also the schools and communities where they teach, their students, and the other educators with whom they work, providing rich opportunities unusual in high-need schools, even for veteran teachers.
