Two more school systems in Cameron County are announcing donations they have received from the Elon Musk Foundation. IDEA Public Schools in Cameron County says it’s been awarded $459,000 – money it says will go toward upgrading science labs and enhancing science education.
The Harlingen CISD is announcing it received a $1 million donation. The Monday announcements follow the first donation announcement Friday from the Point Isabel school district. The monies are part of an overall 20 million dollar pledge SpaceX CEO Elon Musk made to Cameron County school districts late last month.
