Science on Wheels Scholarships Available!
Roper Mountain has received a generous grant from Lockheed Martin to fund Science on Wheels programming for schools and community organizations in Greenville County serving low-income communities. Greenville County schools serving communities with a poverty level of 60% or higher and Greenville County community centers are pre-qualified to receive these scholarships within reasonable limits. Prequalified groups just need to mention that they would like to use the grant money to cover their reservation at the time that they make the reservation request. Community organizations such as libraries, after school programs, summer camps, and day cares in Greenville County who believe they should qualify, may apply for the funding. Contact the Outreach Specialist, Jennifer Romatelli, firstname.lastname@example.org or 864.355.8940, for details.
