 3M Ingenuity Grant

3M Grant  
Sycamore High School was one of 19 schools nationwide to be awarded the 2014 3M Gives Ingenuity Grant. The 3M Grant, totaling almost $19,000 ($18,816), was developed in partnership with Northern Illinois University and Kishwaukee Watershed Program. Sycamore High School students will take part in data collection and research for the Watershed program.  Sycamore High School science teacher Scott Horlock and math teacher Phoebe Balentyne will work with the students and NIU professors Jon Miller and Sheldon Turner in analyzing the information collected to make real world recommendation to improve the water shed.

Comments from the Principal: “We are very fortunate to have a community partners such as 3M and NIU who sees the value in getting our students involved in “real world” experiences in the areas of math and science while they are in high school. The relevance of this project makes learning fun, engaging and impactful. This grant will allow our teachers to present lessons with tools that are normally not affordable to a high school."
