The PPG Industries Foundation has donated $5,000 to Milwaukee Public Schools to support biomedical sciences programs in six high schools. The grant was made on behalf of the PPG Industries’ Oak Creek, Wis., industrial coatings plant and facilitated by Caterpillar, a PPG customer that sponsors programs within the district.
The grant is intended to help the district maintain high-quality, project-based learning in the biomedical sciences courses by replenishing consumable materials used by the students, such as enzymes and blood-typing kits. The program is part of an effort by the district to provide students with experiences in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
