October 21, 2016
(Burnaby, BC) Oct 21, 2016 – Best Buy Canada is proud to announce that 17 elementary schools across the country have been selected to receive funding of up to $10,000 each through the Best Buy School Tech Grant program.
The recipient schools will use these grants to give students access to the latest in computer and digital technology, helping to keep students motivated and engaged as they learn and grow. The tech upgrades will support programs such as robotics clubs, makerspaces, tech for youth at-risk, programming classes, and, an all-girl coding club at an inner city school.
“We were overwhelmed by the interest for this year’s elementary school grants,” said Andrea MacBeth, Best Buy Canada’s Community Relations Manager. “The key to success for our recipients was the passion of the teachers and principals who outlined how additional technology would provide their students with unique experiences, new ways of finding success in the classroom and, in some cases, the potential to change the trajectory of their lives.”
The 17 schools receiving a Best Buy School Tech Grant are:
In addition to these schools, and in partnership with My Class Needs, Best Buy awarded 13 elementary school classrooms with micro-grants of up to $1,500 for technology to support programs in Science, Technology, Engineering or Math.
“We were impressed by the diverse and innovative micro-grant submissions from teachers across Canada, said Amy Coupal, My Class Needs CEO. “Thanks to Best Buy’s support, more students will have new, unique STEM learning opportunities.”
The schools receiving micro-grants are:
“We are delighted to partner with My Class Needs to bring new, innovative technology to these classrooms,” added MacBeth.
All thirty schools will receive their funding in the coming weeks and celebrations will happen at the School Tech Grant recipient schools with the support of local Best Buy teams.
Best Buy Canada focuses its community investment on supporting youth to connect with technology to inspire, motivate and empower their education. Through this mission, Best Buy has provided more than 130 Canadian schools with grants to purchase new technology, in addition to offering post-secondary scholarships and supporting youth with hands on tech learning opportunities.
In the coming months, Best Buy School Tech Grants will offer secondary schools the opportunity to apply for funding for new technology. Educators interested in being notified when grants are next available can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
