The STEAM Centre has received their largest ever donation that will allow them to bring their programming out into Elgin County. Green Lane Community Trust Fund’s $30,000 donation has allowed them to launch their “STEAM Engine” initiative.
The STEAM Engine will bring community programming out into St. Thomas and Elgin County.
Executive Director Jessica Gransaull says that this service will help reduce the travel barrier that some people face to accessing their programming.
Gransaull says the STEAM Engine will bring programming very similar to what they offer in the centre with them on the road.
She adds that the mobile service still needs to be booked and paid for by groups but the grant allows this to be possible.
Gransaull says that this will also allow them to better market the STEAM Centre and possibly bring in new instructors. The STEAM Engine will be available for groups to book beginning in January.
