Innovative Technology Grants

Students at Fairview Elementary School practice coding using a Sphero Bolt programmable robot purchased by Innovative Technology Challenge Grant funds. Franklin County educators are encouraged to apply for grant funding by April 11.

Educators in Franklin County are encouraged to put their imagination and creativity to work by competing for more than $10,000 in available Innovative Technology Challenge Grants to utilize in the classroom for grades K-12.

The Greater Chambersburg Chamber Foundation, an affiliate of the Greater Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce, offers the grants each year to public school teachers in Franklin County thanks to Educational Improvement Tax Credits through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development. The grants are available as a result of contributions from area businesses, including Orrstown Bank and Trust (formerly BB&T).
