Amazon surprised teachers and students at Hardy Elementary with $10,000 in STEM school supplies to launch the new school year and provide the tools and resources children may need to build, imagine and innovate.

After the surprise, volunteers from Amazon’s Chattanooga fulfillment center visited the school’s new STEAM lab to participate in a hands-on project with second-grade students.

Principal Robin Bambrey said students can't wait to learn with the new tools, and thanked Amazon for being involved with schools in the community.
