Do you have an innovative idea for improving STEM learning for middle school or high school students? Is your idea project-based learning with measurable outcomes? What do you need to make learning STEM subjects fun for your students? Teachers at grades 6–12 are invited to apply online for a Toshiba America Foundation grant of up to $5,000 and more than $5,000 to help bring an innovative project into their classroom. With a Toshiba America Foundation grant, sixth- to twelfth-grade teachers can bring their best new teaching ideas to life.

Engineers and artists are a lot alike when they study the effects of forces on something they are designing.
