Owensboro School Programs Surprised with Grants

It's not everyday a teacher goes to school and gets handed hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
It's not everyday a teacher goes to school and gets handed hundreds or even thousands of dollars. That's what happened at several Owensboro Public Schools this morning.

The program committee awarded nearly $11,000 in grants for educational programs. Among them, more than $3,000 for the Estes Elementary Engineering Program.

"It feels wonderful," said Ryan Williams. "Because I truly feel that in doing science, the kids need to get their hands dirty. And this way, they're going to get their hands dirty instead of just sitting in class and learning about it, they're actually going to participate and doing projects."

Other winners include the Engineering Summer Camp at Owensboro Middle School and iPads for visually impaired students at Foust Elementary.
