Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) Northwestern and Potomac high schools have been awarded nearly $100,000 in the inaugural Exelon Green Lab Grant to support initiatives in STEM and environmental sustainability.


The Northwestern High School Eco-Club received a $50,000 grant to replace their greenhouse climate control system, create a horticultural education space, help students develop social and emotional skills, support an after-school leadership program and provide natural areas for students and staff to relax and socialize. The Potomac High School Green Team also received nearly $50,000 to implement Food that Fuels, a program that will use the school’s greenhouse as a community garden to improve access to healthy foods for students and residents.


“I am elated that these grants connect our science curriculum to real world green STEM applications, engage our community and are in sync with our County’s Climate Change Action Plan,” said Dr. Godfrey Rangasammy, K-12 Science Supervisor.


In partnership with The Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago, recipients of the Exelon Green Lab grant are provided with funding to create or modernize new or existing spaces with interactive activities grounded in science, technology, math and/or engineering, among other disciplines.

Regular school attendance ensures students' access to a high-quality education and has a major impact on their success from kindergarten through high school.

To encourage all students to attend instruction (virtual or in-person) daily and on time and to improve chronic absenteeism rates, PGCPS has teamed up with Texas Roadhouse for a systemwide competition, Let’s Knock Attendance Out of the Park. Schools with the most improved and/or lowest chronic absenteeism rate will be recognized at the end of each quarter with a congratulatory banner to display and discounted coupons at Texas Roadhouse!
