A New Haven teacher got help from Hollywood to bring her classroom to life.
When Zania Collier needed help covering the cost of a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) project for her social studies class at King Robinson Magnet School, the Chuck Lorre Family Foundation stepped up to the plate.
Collier had an idea to get her students engaged in their studies.
"I need to find ways that I can incorporate STEM and align it with social studies," said Collier.
