The Landfall Foundation has awarded a $5,000 grant to Cape Fear Community College to improve student engagement in physics courses with the addition of inquiry-based labs and demonstrations through the use of Vernier Systems Equipment. As a result of this grant, students are better able to interpret data, receive real-time feedback, and experience real-world application which will prepare them for today’s workplace.
“With the generous support of the Landfall Foundation, many students will be able to grasp theory and apply the concepts of a discipline perceived to be only for someone majoring in science,” said Orangel Daniels, CFCC’s dean of arts and sciences.
The Landfall Foundation was formed to support local non-profit organizations for programs and projects that provide for the arts, education, and health and welfare in the Wilmington area. Since its establishment in 1996, the Foundation has raised and contributed more than $1.6 million to local organizations.
