City Academy is going full STEAM ahead after receiving an $18,200 grant from The Monsanto Fund to support the school’s new initiative. City Academy added art to STEM, a nationally-recognized strategy for teaching science, technology, engineering and math, to create STEAM. Money from the grant will cover the cost of classroom supplies, equipment and field trips. Pictured: City Academy teacher Noah Hollenkamp works with student Deijiah Jackson
