FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - A young nonprofit organization started by two Fort Wayne teachers is gathering momentum as businesses contribute surplus items to Curriculum Opportunities and Resources for Education or CORE, Inc. It's mission is to provide "business surplus to educators" and "transform items into interactive learning experiences for students in math, science, technology and art."
At this point, the emphasis is on educating businesses on which items are needed, and gathering the surplus items for future use. However, some surplus items have already been incorporated into local classroom learning projects.
For more information on CORE, Inc. and which items are currently needed, please visit their website via our link.
