Boeing donates $35k to Okaloosa County School District


During Baker School’s Family S.T.E.M. Night May 8, kids produce “snow” by mixing powdered “instant snow” in water, which makes it puff up to 10 times its volume. With the new grant from Boeing, the Okaloosa County School District can continue promoting scientific, hands-on education for its students.
