TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Eleven charities across Indiana are benefitting from the SIA Foundation's largest-ever capital grant distribution.

Nearly $90,000 in grants were handed out today to recipients from eight counties, including Tippecanoe and Montgomery.

They were chosen out of 150 applicants. SIA started the Capital Grant Foundation in 1997.

Since then, it has donated more than $1.3 million to families around Indiana.

Battle Ground Middle School is going to use its award to help students realize their interests.

Ricci Barber, an Engineering and Tech Teacher at Batlle Ground Middle School said, "And what the technology does in STEM education is, I think, it really allows them to start and understand how their education, while they're in school, is used in the outside world."

Battle Ground Middle School plans to order its new 3 -D printer in a few weeks.

Students will begin using it next semester.
