Ambler Savings Bank Awards $10,000 Grant for MarkerSpace and More

The Wissahickon Educational Opportunities Foundation (WEOF) received a $10,000 grant from Ambler Savings Bank on Tuesday, March 29th. The grant is earmarked to enhance the MakerSpace at Wissahickon Middle School (WMS), as well as other activities at WMS and Wissahickon elementary schools.

From the WEOF Website:

A former computer lab, the MakerSpace was created for students to make, innovate, create and design. The MakerSpace features dedicated space for students to learn about robotics, science, technology, art and math through engaging, hands-on activities.

Students showed representatives of Ambler Savings Bank how they work with Romo and Sphero Robots, little Bits electronic sets, Hot Wheels Speedometry Kits and a MakerBot Replicator 5th Generation 3D Printer.

Ambler Savings Bank utilized the Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC), which provides a tax credit to businesses that invest in educational organizations like the WEOF.
