The Education Foundation of the Summit announced its spring Innovative Teaching Awards on Monday, offering more than $18,000 in grants this cycle.

Among the winning projects, elementary school students will get the chance to scuba dive with hammerhead sharks and drive a buggy on the moon with virtual reality. At Snowy Peaks High school, students will take a minimum of one off-campus trip each quarter through expeditionary learning experiences out in the community. Other projects included robotics competitions, leadership, ski-tuning and summer reading programs.

The Education Foundation of the Summit is a nonprofit organization with an all-volunteer group of parents and community members dedicated to supporting public school students and teachers in Summit County.
