Luxembourg-based ArcelorMittal has awarded a $150,000 grant to the Northwest Indiana Environmental Education Partnership. The company, which is one of the largest employers in the region, says the ESTEM grant will support the integration of environmental education into STEM learning.

ArcelorMittal says the funding will allow 3,500 students and more than 130 teachers from schools throughout northwest Indiana to continue engagement in STEM. The company specifically highlighted the Dunes Learning Center, which it says "strives to cultivate the next generation of conservation leaders, problem-solvers, and critical thinkers."

"We are delighted to work with the Northwest Indiana Environmental Education Partnership to support and encourage hands-on learning that helps students better understand how STEM can be applied to everyday life, and how they can use it to create real change in their communities," said John Brett, chief executive officer of ArcelorMittal USA. "This partnership has helped us further our goal of inspiring the leaders of tomorrow to keep growing as students as well as active, thoughtful citizens who will work to protect the environment."

ArcelorMittal says the grant will support programs in Gary, Hammond, Hobart, Michigan City, Portage, Westville, Chesterton, Crown Point, and Valparaiso during the 2017-2018 school year.
