“This is the first time I’ve ever had kids so eager to get to science class that they were running to my classroom to get started on their projects. The project brought to life scientific principles for 187 students with a real-world example that they could all see in action.”
Lori Cirucci, science teacher and content leader at Broughal Middle School, Bethlehem, Pa.

PPL Electric Utilities provides support to eligible Education Improvement Organizations and Pre-K Scholarship Organizations. We do not participate in the Scholarship category of this program. We accept grant applications annually June 1 through July 15. Please note, however, that our participation in this program is dependent on state approval.
