Small MAC Grants available for middle school teachers
In recognition of National Teacher Appreciation Week, McDonald’s restaurants are launching the 22nd annual MAC Grants program to help area middle school teachers Make Activities Count for their students.
The MAC Grants program provides financial support so teachers can bring hands-on tools into the classroom to engage their students in innovative ways.
Fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grade teachers may apply for grants of up to $500 for interesting and educational projects. Teachers can use grant money to energize a science lesson by allowing students to construct their own DNA models; build carnival games to teach experimental and theoretical probability; or explore forensics in their very own crime lab. Because McDonald’s is soliciting ideas from teachers, project ideas are limitless.
Teachers in Greater Pittsburgh Area can now apply for a 2016 MAC Grant at http://www.macgrants.com. All applications must be submitted, along with a W-9 form, by August 1, 2016. A limited number of grant recipients will be chosen on or before September 15.
