TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) KMVT and other Magic Valley community leaders are helping change lives, one classroom at a time.
Kindergarten through fifth grade classes at Lighthouse Christian School are now able to learn more about science, technology engineering and mathematics thanks to a $2,820 grant by Snake River Pool and Spa, KMVT and Blue Lakes Inn.
The STEM bins they purchased with the money are teaching the students how to build, problem solve and think creatively.
Second grade teacher Nicole Tabb explained that the school was also able to buy something else.
"We were able to get some robots that we're going to start doing some coding, cause that's really important right now for those kids going into the workforce, and circuits, so we're going to learn how to work with some electrical circuits,” Tabb stated.
The elementary principal says they are extremely thankful for the grant, since they are a private school and don't get funding like public schools.
