Funded by the Cargill Foundation, OISC aims to bringing a STEM-based curriculum, Raptor Lab, into classrooms in underserved communities in Minneapolis, its northern and western suburbs, and St. Paul.

The Cargill Foundation recently awarded The Raptor Center a $315,000 grant to expand STEM education in the Twin Cities using Raptor Lab, an online learning platform that puts raptors at the center of scientific education and exploration.
While there is currently no scientific evidence that raptors can contract or carry the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19, the pandemic has impacted us at The Raptor Center (TRC) in a number of ways.
