L&L Products North America Makes Grants Available to Local School Districts to Support STEAM (Science, Technology, the Arts, and Mathematics)

Romeo, Michigan, September 9, 2019– For the second time in its history, L&L Products made grants available to school districts where L&L employees live to support STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics) education or activities, which:

  • Inspire excitement of STEAM
  • Improve, advance, and enrich students’ understanding of STEAM
  • Include hands-on learning activities in STEAM

Through the initiative, local school districts could apply for grants of up to $6,000. Grants are used to support STEAM-related projects taking place during the school day along with STEAM-related school-sanctioned extra-curricular groups/clubs that receive school oversight.

Romeo Community Schools in Romeo, Michigan was just one of many school districts to apply and receive the grant for a robotics program project. The project included six students who had the idea to create a single cab dune buggy for off-road conditions, which is currently not an available option in the dune buggy market. The idea was for the buggy to handle all terrains such as rocks, dirt, and sand. Speed and climbing ability were also key aspects to consider while designing the vehicle.

Engineers from the Ford Engine Plant in Romeo, MI, provided feedback on the dune buggy project and reviewed the designs. The project was constructed to enter into the 2018-19 Michigan Industrial and Technology Education Society (MITES) competition.
