It is with great pleasure that we announce Trinity Hall is a recipient of a $10,000 Model Classroom Grant awarded by OceanFirst Foundation. We are honored that our proposal was one of the 15 winners chosen by the OceanFirst Foundation’s Board of Directors out of a field of over 70 applicants. With this grant, Trinity Hall will step forward to become one of the most cutting-edge high schools in New Jersey. Full STE(a)M ahead!
Model Classroom Grant Proposal Summary:
Trinity Hall will focus on enhancing its Art and Engineering Lab where students attend classes in engineering, design and physics. The primary mission of their model classroom and its related curriculum is to close the gap for women in STE(a)M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) professions by giving young women opportunities to experience real world engineering problems that allow for the development of problem-solving skills. Discovery, participation, collaboration and hands-on learning will be at the core of every lesson.
The school will use its grant to purchase equipment that will enhance hands-on learning including a 3-D printer, laser cutter, band saw, a robotics classroom set, drill press, computer station and related software. They will partner with nearby elementary and middle schools and will share their updated model classroom space to mentor younger students as they work together on engineering and design projects.
