Devon Provides STEM Grants for Northwestern OK FFA Chapters

Fri, 02 Oct 2020 11:46:33 CDT

Devon Provides STEM Grants for Northwestern OK FFA Chapters Two northwestern Oklahoma FFA chapters received boosts to their science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education thanks to grants from Devon Energy.

Mulhall-Orlando FFA will use a grant to purchase a UV safety glass sanitation station, a UV cabinet for disinfecting electronic devices and a handheld UV portable sanitizer. The equipment will help keep students safe during the ongoing public health crisis and will allow them to learn about cutting-edge technology.

Woodward FFA plans to purchase a poly pipe drip watering system for the development of an on-site orchard. The chapter will plant and tend to apple and peach trees and donate the fruit to an area food bank.

"Gaining access to new equipment and technology allows students to explore what's possible in FFA and the agriscience industry," said Jacey Fye, executive director of the Oklahoma FFA Foundation. "Devon's generous grants will help open avenues to prosperous careers and further solidify the value of STEM education."

Devon started the FFA Technology & Innovation Grants in 2019 to increase access to advanced tools being used in the agriculture industry and provide hands-on learning opportunities.

"Having resources to experiment and gain real-world experience fosters student ingenuity and creativity," said Christina Rehkop, Devon's director of community relations. "Devon is dedicated to providing the education future leaders need to succeed."

Chandler and Wellston FFA chapters were also awarded Technology & Innovation Grants.
