The education grant provided by the GLBMA was able to provide the Essexville Hampton Public Schools girls coding club with multiple 3D printers that we will use to build student skill sets, confidence, and self efficacy in regards to engineering. We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with the GLBMA in bringing a much needed technology to the forefront of both our girls coding club and our school district.
