Students in the Alton School District will be seeing an increase in science programs as district officials announced their acceptance of a $9,720 grant from Dyengy Incorporated during last week’s meeting. The money will be divided between three different groups including elementary school students according to Alton High School Principal Dr. Russ Tepen.

The remaining funds will be split between the physics and chemistry classes at Alton High. $4,000 will be used to purchase notebook computers and more teaching materials for physics students. While the rest will be used to purchase chemistry equipment such as chemicals, hot plates and a cabinet sterilizer for goggles.
