In an unusual partnership, three higher education institutions in Frederick County secured a federal grant to enhance their science offerings.
Frederick Community College, Hood College and Mount St. Mary’s University jointly received a $330,975 grant from the National Science Foundation. It will pay for professional-grade instruments and fund student internships that will continue for three summers.
The money comes as the focus in education has turned to science, technology, mathematics and engineering, often called STEM.
At FCC, four new tools received under the grant were introduced Wednesday. The school recently finished renovations to two buildings that house FCC’s science and mathematics classrooms.
