Cornerstone Christian Academy received a $500 donation from Siemens Corporation on Aug.11. Melissa Dill, Lower School principal, along with students, accepted the donation.
“The Cornerstone community is grateful for the donation, but more importantly for the partnership with Siemens that brought hands-on experiments and a passion for science into our classrooms,” Dill said.
Last spring, Siemens employees across the country volunteered as part of the “Spring Into STEM” campaign to mentor students, highlight STEM careers, judge science fairs and lead Siemens STEM Day activities for K-12 and college students in classrooms, at Siemens sites and during community STEM events.
In March, the Siemens Peachtree Corners location hosted a Siemens Science Day for Cornerstone Christian Academy. Employees from four divisions hosted “bottle music” teaching to fourth grade classes at the school.
Following the STEM campaign, an internal social network competition was held to win a $500 donation to two student organizations that were supported this spring. Cornerstone was one of the two winners for the donation getting the most likes in the internal campaign.
