The Marbles Kids Museum in Raleigh has received a $200,000 grant from Duke Energy to build a new STEM Learning Center and to help fund school field trips. 

The grant will provide free field trips to several elementary schools in Bladen, Duplin, Edgecombe, Lenoir, Pitt, Sampson, Vance, Warren and Wilson Counties. 

“Children have fun while learning at Marbles,” said Sally Edwards, president of Marbles Kids
Museum. She added that “We are proud to partner with Duke Energy to advance our STEM learning goals.”

Stick Williams, president of the Duke Energy Foundation, noted that “The kids exploring marbles today are tomorrow’s energy workforce. We’re glad to provide an early glimpse at the excitement a STEM career can offer.”
