Last year, Hodgeman County Elementary received a $500 donation from the Midwest Energy Community Fund to help build a makerspace in the elementary school library.  A makerspace is a collaborative work space for making, learning, exploring, and sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools. 

The Midwest Energy Community Fund's donation was used to purchase a Kid Spark Engineering Pathways Mobile-STEM Lab that will help students experience STEM Fundamentals, applications in design & engineering, robotics, and systems of technology.  

The Midwest Energy Community Fund was created in 2005, and provides funds to activities that focus on youth, arts, education, libraries, community events, and similar projects.  Five committees of Midwest Energy customers determine who receives the awards ranging from $50 to $1,000.  Thank you, Midwest Energy!
