BETHLEHEM, PA – Today, representatives of EVS Metal’s East Stroudsburg facility presented a grant in the amount of $3,200 to the National Museum of Industrial History. This grant will go toward the Future Innovators Fund, which offers students much-needed exposure to experiential learning and real-world examples of the historical and ongoing impact STEM innovations have had locally, nationally, and globally. Support from EVS Metal will allow NMIH to waive the costs for up to 400 public school students from Stroudsburg Middle School to visit the Museum in early April.
The grant is part of NMIH’s Future Innovators fund, a program where donors contribute to help students engage with science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematic and social history learning opportunities. The donations help offset the costs of school field trips and outreach programs for eligible schools. “We’re ecstatic that EVS Metal’s strong commitment to community support and education will allow students to enhance their learning through the inspirational industrial history presented in the museum,” said NMIH President & CEO, Kara Mohsinger. “Their generous support allows for these students to learn from the nation’s industrial past and one day become future innovators, entrepreneurs, and engineers.”
“The National Museum of Industrial History is an incredible resource, especially for the local community, and there are few areas of study more important than those involving STEM,” said Joe Amico, Vice President of EVS Metal. “EVS Metal is honored to play a part in supporting area students so that they may someday reach their full potential as leaders in science and technology.”
