Easterday Awarded INL Grant

Dr. Troy Easterday and the Castleford School District was awarded a $5000 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics grant from the Idaho National Laboratory Tuesday morning. Dr. Easterday wrote the grant with the help of Sue Ambrose. This grant will go towards starting an alternate energy STEM program for seventh through twelfth grades in the Castleford District. There, students will be engaged in hands-on learning that could have an impact on their daily lives. Dr. Easterday is hoping to eventually partner with the ag department to help students convert a gas engine to one that runs on biofuel. Furthermore, he hopes to the program will grow allowing students to work in PEM fuel cells, solar energy, wind energy, and hydroelectric power sources studying their efficiency and environmental impacts. Castleford is excited for Dr. Easterday and proud that he pursued this grant that will allow him to teach students about science and energy in new and adventurous ways. Dr. Easterday and the entire Castleford School District would like to thank INL for this award.
