Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Grant Brings Science Lab to Third-Grade Class in Washington

Boston, MA, April 23, 2012 – The Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Corp., a nonprofit, tax-exempt entity established by attorneys from Brown Rudnick LLP, has awarded a Community Grant to the Septima Clark Public Charter School, the only all male public school located in Washington, DC's Ward 8. The grant will help the school purchase equipment and materials for a science lab for third-grade students.
Grant applicant and Lead Third Grade Teacher, Robin Woodlon, said, “Our goal is to build a science education program that is empowering, inclusive, and transformative. In addition to reading, writing and talking about science, Septima Clark wants to bring learning to life and make science interactive and fun! Our strategy is to focus on engagement in the classroom while learning to share evidence based on the Scientific Method. We thank the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation for their grant, which will allow us to create this much-needed science lab.”

Al Wallis, Executive Director of the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Corp., added, “We are delighted to support Septima Clark’s elementary science education program. By supporting this program, we hope the science lab will further encourage students’ curiosity about the natural world around them, and help them acquire a broad appreciation of the important ideas and discoveries of science and for how scientific research works.”

Created to support front-line educators who often do not have a voice in funding decisions, the Community Grants subsidize small, concrete projects, which will improve inner-city education within Boston, Hartford, Providence, New York or Washington DC within the coming year. The Foundation will generally consider grant applications monthly and award grants in an amount totaling not more than $2000 in any one month. The grant applications and an explanation of the program can be found at www.brownrudnickcenter.com/foundation/communitygrant.asp.
