East Longmeadow Public Schools (ELPS) received 2 Project Lead The Way grants. ELPS received 2 of the 72 grants awarded across the Commonwealth. There were only 3 new grant awards in Western Massachusetts and 2 of those went to our schools. We are very excited to be able to enhance our Science and Engineering curriculum with the help of these grants.
