Devon Science Giant Award and Grant
HFAA Wins Devon Science Giant Award & Grant
Our 15-16 fundraising goal has been to raise $120,000 to provide upgrades and improvements to our science classrooms. Funds raised will purchase modern science laboratory equipment and furniture to build a dual-use science laboratory and classroom space. The $17,275 raised during Annual Fundraising Campaign last fall and the funds raised from our Leadership in Arts & Education event this coming spring will go toward these improvements.
During the January 29th Performance & Exhibition Assembly, HFAA was awarded the Devon Science Giant grant of $25,000 to be put toward our science classroom upgrade! The Devon Science Giant award is given to an Oklahoma City public school that demonstrates innovative approaches to science education. To date, only four local schools have received this grant. It is designed to help educators provide strategic, inventive and hands-on science instruction that helps spark students’ interest in the field.
Congratulations Dr. Schuerch, Mr. Havens and Ms. Rodgers from the HFAA science department for your continued innovative teaching efforts and dedication to the HFAA students! Thank you Devon Energy Corporation for your generous gift! Thank you to our past and future donors for helping us foster generations of creative and scientific minds!
