  • The district recently received $250,000, via the Marshall Plan for Talent Grant, that will provide Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) education, career awareness, exposure to engineering activities (robotics, 3D printing), and an introduction to entrepreneurship, STEM technology innovations, design innovations, coding, and an introduction to agriscience. This enhancement to instructional programming aligns perfectly with Beaverton’s local plastics manufacturing industry and agricultural demographic.
