Tincan Receives New Grants
Tincan received two new grants this fall that will lead to significant program initiatives this year.

The National Science Foundation has awarded Tincan $438,396 for the first year of the Science Journalism Pathways to STEM Careers (SJP) project. The SJP project will be carried out in partnership with two Seattle organizations: the Puget Sound Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology and Reel Grrls. Ten after-school clubs (five in the Seattle area and five in Spokane) will engage middle school girls in science journalism, where they will use information technology to investigate and publish information about science issues in their community. Additionally, they will carry out hands-on science activities to shed light on their science story, and will interview STEM professionals who work in disciplines important to their explorations. Their video science news stories and video productions on STEM careers will be published on-line.

AT&T has awarded a $35,000 High School Success grant for a pilot project to support high school retention for at-risk students. Tincan's project focuses on ninth grade boys at Rogers High School who have been identified as being at significant risk of dropping out of school. The boys will be paired with a business mentor who will guide them through the challenges and opportunities facing their business. Through developing a business plan, they will learn what the educational requirements of the business are, and be introduced to practical issues: financial management, workplace ethics, insurance, etc. In addition to their business Web site, students will produce a short 5-10 minute video of their mentor's business to tell the story of the business's role in the community and what a career in that business requires.
