WENATCHEE — A $20,000 grant from the Alcoa Foundation will help fund Wenatchee School District’s after-school programs.

The grant will increase students’ exposure to math and science, said district Superintendent Brian Flones.

The program offers elementary and middle school students hands-on activities. Students learn by building rockets, working with magnets, creating marble roller coasters and other activities that support learning during regular school hours. Grant funds will be used for equipment and to pay program instructors.
