TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson's largest school district is trying to get community help to match a $10,000 grant that it is getting for science, technology, engineering and math programs.

The donation from Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp. will be presented March 31 and will be used for STEM initiatives in the Tucson Unified School District. These will include a summer camp for rising first graders and programs at two middle schools.

Booth-Fickett Math/Science School will create an optical robotics team, and Mansfield Middle School will use hydropower kits to teach students how water can be used as a renewable resource.

TUSD will accept donations until March 31.

Please make checks out to Tucson Unified School District with the memo line of Match Campaign. Send checks to Kristina Allen, Director of Grants & Partnerships, 1010 E. 10th Street, Tucson AZ, 85719.
