DAVIESS COUNTY, Ky. (WEHT) – Daviess County Public Schools get some help in educating students in stem fields.

DCPS received a $25,000 grant from America’s Farmers Grow Real Education fund.

The money will pay for science equipment kits for all grade schools in the district.

Educators say it helps them get students tools they need to be in science related fields.

“The materials to do that curriculum is what we needed. It covers anything from the rock cycle to the water cycle and anything in between on what these kids can do so we can better prepare them for middle school and high school as scientists and engineers.”

More than $18 million in grants were awarded to schools across the country by the fund since 2011.
