Unit 5 Math Teachers Awarded $10 "Beyond the Box" Grant
Math teachers in Unit 5 will learn new skills thanks to a grant from a local non-profit. The math departments at Normal West and Normal Community High Schools applied for "Beyond the Box" grants earlier this year. They were awarded $10-thousand dollars to continue their work on taking mathematics to the next dimension. The prize money will help educate the math departments in 3D modeling and design, along with workshops for 3D printing. The schools will also purchase a 3D printer with the award money.
