A local middle school received a special donation after being nominated by a former student.
Greer Lingle Middle School in Rogers is one of 100 schools across the nation selected to receive a Chain Reaction Stem Kit and a $300 donation from local engineering firm Garver.
The kit includes tools to build 3D structures and to help students learn about the engineering design process.
“This kit is going to be all about motion. It’s gonna be having kids create things that are going to push and pull, and so, we’re really excited to get these items in the kids’ hands [and] just see what they can come up with,” said Tara Herbert, Greer Lingle media specialist.
The school is also invited to participate in the Garver Chain Reaction Challenge for a chance to win an additional $1,000.
