"Dear VPL vplstore.com,

We are now fully funded! I cannot contain my excitement. Thank you so much for your support, believing in my classroom and providing materials for STEM in our room. My students will be excited to get to investigate and create on a consistent basis. They are always so surprised when I randomly bring something new in our classroom and I can't wait to see their faces when our STEM station is up and running.

With gratitude,
Ms. S."

We are excited for children to be creative thinkers and use STEM to solve problems!
