School district receives $10,000 tech ed grant

POULSBO — The North Kitsap School District’s Career and Technical Education program received a $10,000 grant this week.

The grant funds will be used to encourage female students in grades seven through 12  to get  involved  with  the  middle  and  high school engineer programs and prepare for high skill and high demand occupations.

The money will be used in the following ways: free registration and transportation for students to attend the Girls Exploring Math and Science Career Conference at Olympic College in March; participation in the Remotely Operated Vehicles program, a program that puts together a pre-fabricated shed; and a lunch meeting with women from Raytheon to discuss career opportunities.

“We hope that we can get more female students interested in participating in the classes we offer,” said Patrick Olsen,” director of CTE. “They will have the opportunity to explore all of the possibilities within the engineering and STEM fields.”
