September 10, 2012

MERCERSBURG, Pa. — During the 2011-12 school year, the Tuscarora Education Foundation’s board of directors approved more than $10,000 worth of grant requests from faculty, staff and students of the Tuscarora School District; and another $4,000 in scholarship opportunities for students enrolled at James Buchanan High School.

Some of the grant money awarded is funding “The Science of Flight,” which will add a flight simulator to the collection of educational tools at the school. Students will engage in the study of physics, navigation, instrumentation, geography, mathematics, flight engineering and aeronautics, and will serve as an extension of the S.T.E.M program.

“Mercersburg Under Construction” is also another unique project that provides iPads to entire classrooms to work on projects together with the focus on engineering and architecture during the renovation process.

Other grant money was awarded to Reading Power Library programs, performers in residence, technology for the classroom and “Graphing Calculator Robots.”
