Chemours Corpus Christi announced it is providing Ingleside Independent School District (ISD) with a $90,000 grant to advance science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education throughout the district. The grant, funded through Chemours’ Vibrant Communities initiative, will support four robotics teams at schools of every age level from elementary/primary to high school and new curriculum for high school robotics and engineering pathways.
“This grant is further proof of Chemours' growing partnership with Ingleside School District to advance STEM education opportunities and our investment in the Coastal Bend,” said Mark Reyes, Chemours Corpus Christi plant manager. “We hope to partner with the school district to spark an interest in STEM in our youngest students that they carry that spark through high school and beyond. In addition to the dollars, Chemours employees will actively engage with the students to provide hands-on and real-world learning opportunities.”
Ingleside ISD Superintendent Troy Mircovich shared, “I am extremely proud of our partnership with Chemours. They have proven to be committed to sustainable chemistry, innovation, and developing future leaders in the Coastal Bend. Ingleside ISD students will have a chance to experience top-of-the-line STEM curriculum and opportunities thanks to the support we have received from Chemours.”
