Many teachers would like to extend their students' learning by taking them on a field trip to a museum, zoo, farm, nature center, or other informal science education venue. But tight budgets may make this almost impossible. Fortunately, Target has established a Field Trip Grant program to help teachers continue to take their students on field trips.
Each Target store will award three Field Trip Grants to K–12 schools nationwide, enabling one in 25 schools throughout the United States to send a classroom on a field trip. Teachers can use a grant to fund a school field trip that connects their curriculum to out-of-school experiences. Each grant is valued up to $700. The application period opened this week; visit the website to learn more and apply.
