Troy Middle School SciCap Exploratory teacher Dr. Barbara Will-Henn has received a $1,000 STEM grant from Window World of Joliet. The grant was designed to be used to further the advancement of science, technology, engineering and math curricula during the 2017-2018 school year.

Will-Henn said she will use the grant dollars to purchase an 8’x12’ greenhouse that will be erected on school property this fall. Use of the greenhouse will help teachers instruct TMS students and Garden Club members on botanical and environmental concepts in a hands-on manner.
