Merck grant enables OLOL to become GLOBE school

Our Lady of Lourdes Regional School has received a Merck “Neighbor of Choice” community grant for the purpose of designing and implementing a Lourdes GLOBE Imagination Station.
The station will feature the Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) program, a worldwide hands-on, primary and secondary school-based science and education program.
Funding from the “Neighbor of Choice Community Grants Program” will assist in establishing training, materials and implementation of the Lourdes “GLOBE Imagination Station” to promote students’ scientific critical thinking and verbal skills while exposing them to a full range of opportunities to further their understanding of earth sciences.
