Harper Junior High School has qualified as a finalist for a $15,000 grant from PG&E and The NEED project. This multi-step process has narrowed applicants down to three California schools, with the winner to be determined by public vote and announced on Friday.
“The Davis community is called to support this opportunity and bring funds into the school district in support of an outdoor STEM lab, which includes completion of the aquaponics system and construction of a greenhouse/lath house as well as human-powered water pumps for irrigation,” said Carrie Juchau, the Davis RISE and school garden coordinator at Harper.
Voting will continue until 6 p.m. Friday. Everyone may vote once a day per electronic device, at http://pge.need.org/biggerbrightideas#Harper.
Harper’s goal is to expand to become a hands-on student educational farm and living STEM laboratory.
