Dana Middle science program gets $3,250

Dana Middle School Global software developer Bentley Systems has again made a donation to the science program at Dana Middle School in Point Loma.

The $3,250 grant will be used to purchase equipment and materials for the school's labs.

"We would like to thank the employees at Bentley Systems Corporation for continuing to provide our science department with funds to purchase equipment and materials for our classroom labs," said Principal Diane Ryan. "The ongoing support from more than a dozen Bentley employees, who donated money that was matched by the company, is outstanding."

Last year, employees at Bentley Systems Incorporated raised $3,000 through a matching grant program with their company for the purpose of supporting the science program at Dana Middle School. The Dana Middle Science department used these funds to take a field trip to the Cabrillo tide pools, acquire video cameras, electronic balances, and polyprophylene measuring wear, purchase chemistry supplies for use in classroom demonstrations.
