Mt. Pleasant technology teacher seeks votes to capture grant for mobile incubator
Lee Smith, a technology teacher at Mt. Pleasant Area Senior High, is a finalist for a competitive $100,000 Dream Big grant that would help fund a mobile technology incubator for the district.
According to the contest website, Smith is one of 15 teachers from around the country who are in the running for five grants from Farmers Insurance that would support their proposed projects. The mobile unit would include areas for research and production of student projects and could circulate among the district's six schools.
If Smith wins, Mobile Concept Specialty Vehicles in East Huntingdon is slated to build the incubator.
Winners will be determined by votes received through Oct. 30 at ThankAmericasTeachers.com . Winners will be announced in December.
