Gilbert Unified School District’s before- and after-school program, known as VIK Club, earned one of nine $1,500 STEM grants from the Arizona Center for Afterschool Excellence and Cox Communications. The grants were awarded to programs that “support creative efforts to incorporate science, technology, engineering and math into today’s curriculum,” according to a press release.

The Gilbert district will use the funds at six club sites to add digital photography to hands-on art projects and books.

The Arizona Center for Afterschool Excellence is a nonprofit organization that works to improve access to high quality out-of-school programs.
