On October 7, 2013, the Board of Education approved and accepted the first three grants proposed by the SSEF and all three programs are now underway in their respective schools. The three initiatives total $90,000 in funding. All three reflect ideas that emerged from the Center for Innovation in its first year of operation. (For more information, see Center for Innovation at the Scarsdale School Public Schools web site.)
The first two projects (MakerSpace and Gaming) were created as pilot efforts by the Center and the third (HackScarsdale) is a direct outgrowth of the work by teachers and administrators within the Center to envision creative enhancements in the learning environment they offer our students.
