BETHLEHEM, PA – The National Museum of Industrial History is pleased to share that EVS Metal’s East Stroudsburg facility renewed their commitment to offering students of Stroudsburg Middle School invaluable exposure to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (S.T.E.A.M.) and social history education through the Future Innovators Fund with a $3,000 grant.
For the third year in a row, EVS Metal has allowed NMIH to waive the costs for nearly 400 public school students to visit the museum to explore the connection between America’s industrial past and today’s ever-changing world of technology and innovation.
The Museum’s Future Innovators Fund is a program to which donors contribute to help students experience S.T.E.A.M. and social history learning opportunities outside their classrooms to build critical skills. Donations help offset the cost of school field trips and outreach programs for eligible schools in the community.
“EVS Metal’s ongoing support ensures the students of Stroudsburg Middle School have the opportunity to be inspired by the people, machines and ideas that shape our nation’s rich tradition of innovation and invention,” said NMIH President & CEO, Kara Mohsinger.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to support the young people in our community by giving them access to the National Museum of Industrial History,” said Joe Amico, Vice President of EVS Metal. “It’s our hope that visits to NMIH inspire these students to consider careers in related fields such as manufacturing and fabrication and become our future industry leaders.”
