New STEM Spaces Foster Equity and Access
To create a new educational and recreational space designed to increase access to STEM opportunities and resources for all students, we made a $350,000 contribution to sponsor the Rockwell Automation FIRST Robotics Development Zone at the new MSOE (Milwaukee School of Engineering) We Energies STEM Center. This space includes a 1,500-square-foot playing field where teams have ample room to test designs and practice for competitions. Additionally, we donated $400,000 to the Boys and Girls Clubs to open three new spaces at the Don & Sallie Davis Club on Milwaukee’s southside: a Makerspace/hybrid classroom providing hands-on experience in all aspects of STEM; a digital recreation “games” room rooted in STEM learning, and a renovated “Big Pals Room” filled with innovative STEM-based games and learning activities to inspire off-screen imaginative play and creativity. Our Chairman and CEO, Blake Moret, proudly serves on the BGCGM Board of Trustees.
