RIMROCK - Last fall, Beaver Creek School was one of a dozen schools to be chosen for a STEM grant from the APS Foundation. Now, the school is preparing a STEM Extravaganza to showcase what the grant brings to the district.

The Focus Schools for the Future program brings a new focus to advance knowledge and support in the field of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education.

"There were 12 public schools chosen, so it was kind of a competitive thing," said lead teacher Tammy Naef.

Besides $1,000 in materials and equipment, the grant provides up 100 hours of intensive professional development at Northern Arizona University, travel stipends and iPads. Naef said there was a training session in the fall, and there will be more sessions this spring and summer.

The grant team includes Naef, Julie Heal and Principal Kim Rice.

In September, the APS Foundation provided $250,000 to launch the STEM Focus Schools for the Future program. It is operated in partnership with the Center for Science Teaching and Learning at NAU. APS' stated purpose for the grant funding is to improve Arizona workplace competitiveness in the future.

Beaver Creek School's STEM Extravaganza is Thursday, Feb. 21. There will be a dinner at 5:15 in the cafeteria followed by an array of activities.
