GraceKennedy Foundation has recently embarked on a new Early Childhood Education Research Project, which is being undertaken through the Dudley Grant Memorial Trust to train teachers and parents of young children between the ages of three years and six years on how to communicate science in an exciting way. It is hoped that this will foster an interest in science as they progress to primary school. The project will serve four basic and infant schools and infant departments in the community surrounding the STEM Centre which is located downtown.
