Devon Energy Surprises Seven Hills Elementary School with Grant Award
Devon Energy made a surprise visit on February 5 and awarded Seven Hills Elementary Library Media Specialist Melissa Quisenberry a $10,000 grant. Quisenberry wrote the grant, part of Devon’s Science Giants grant program, to purchase mobile STEM and maker space labs and be used to build a foundation level of resources to support the school’s STEM Education initiative.
This year, the school began transforming its library into a learning commons, housing all STEM resources for student and teacher engagement. The Devon Science Giants Grant will support the seamless integration of applied math and sciences into classroom instruction, through the addition of mobile STEM labs filled with the necessary resources to provide authentic and relevant learning experiences for students.
