REPSOL Donates to

Bradford Tioga Head Start

STEM Purchases

Educators and administrators believe that STEM education will play an important role in determining which countries will be global economic and technology leaders. So do you know what STEM is? STEM is the acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. And while it sounds like it is geared to older students, if you break it down you'll see that there can be connections in preschool and kindergarten classrooms. Science happens when you study plants and lifecycles; technology and engineering can take place every day in block play, and math can happen at the snack table, the block corner, and even during manipulative play. This means that it's all about providing the right materials and being intentional in teaching no matter the age of the students!

That is why, Bradford Tioga Head Start was so excited when they were contacted by Repsol Oil and Gas USA, LLC.  Repsol has made a commitment to become involved in the education, environment and the communities where they operate. Their donation to purchase STEM related materials for the Blossburg Head Start classroom, shows their support of the local community. Bradford Tioga Head Start is thankful for these funds which will allow the children in the Blossburg Head Start classroom to experience STEM firsthand.
