    Paideia School has been awarded a Captain Planet/ Ray Anderson Foundation Eco-tech grant. Sixteen $2,500 grants were given to schools or nonprofit organizations that engage children in inquiry-based projects in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math) that use innovation, biomimicry / nature-based design, or new uses for technology to address environmental problems in their communities.

The project integrates core subjects such as science, sustainability, engineering, design, civic, business and accounting.
