Representatives of EVS Metal’s Pennsylvania facility reaffirmed their commitment to S.T.E.M education via their second annual grant to the National Museum of Industrial History’s (NMIH) Future Innovators Fund.
The $3000 grant will allow NMIH to waive admittance costs for nearly 400 public school students at East Stroudsburg Middle School for the second year in a row. Students will now be able to visit the museum free of charge, giving them the opportunity to learn from America’s industrial past while connecting it to today’s ever-changing world of technology and innovation.
The Museum’s Future Innovators Fund is a donor-funded and directly helps engage students in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics via social history learning opportunities. Donations help offset the cost of school field trips and outreach programs for eligible schools.
“EVS Metal’s strong support for their community and education through industrial history is important in teaching new generations where we came from,” said NMIH President & CEO, Kara Mohsinger. “By telling the story of our country’s history of innovation and connecting it to today’s world, we hope to inspire future engineers, entrepreneurs, and inventors.”
“Having a Smithsonian Affiliate available in our backyard is an incredible asset with which to educate the young people of our community,” said Joe Amico, Vice President of EVS Metal. “NMIH offers many valuable resources, especially for those who are interested in becoming leaders in technical fields. By invoking the stories of the men and women who founded and built the U.S. and combining those stories with the skills students need to succeed, it’s a win-win scenario.”
