Direct To Teacher Approach

The Toshiba America Foundation has a simple design. Grant’s administrator is the teacher, more like an evangelist. The Teachers will design a program that promotes STEM researchers and interest in students. The direct outcome should be positive for both society & students.

The Direct to Teacher approach brings immediate results as teachers are a single point of contact for student’s queries. STEM has already a very good and guided curriculum and the Toshiba America Foundation’s grant will aid students for types of equipment, and other resources which Government and City cannot usually provide.
