Mustang Teacher Receives Funding the
Future Grant for Innovative STEM Program in Classroom
View Elementary School teacher Paula Sharp earned a Funding the
Future grant from Continental Resources.
Since 2013, Continental has awarded grants to teachers across the company’s operating area to bolster educational efforts in the key subjects of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and reading. The grants are intended to fund innovative and engaging educational programs that nurture students with the educational resources they need to grow into future leaders.
“It is our hope at Continental that these grants are used to inspire the next generation of mathematicians, scientists and geologists in our state,” Continental Chairman and CEO Harold Hamm said. “Supporting Oklahoma’s outstanding teachers and students has long been a priority of our company, and we look forward to seeing how this grant money is used to further the education experience and prepare our next generation.”
Sharp’s grant will provide students in all
grades at Prairie View an opportunity to work with robots to learn coding
More than 200 teachers in four states applied for Continental’s Funding the Future grants in 2018. A review committee voted to award grants to 47 teachers, including 33 in Oklahoma.
