Cameron County ‘STEM Lab’ ready

Cameron County School District is getting in step with a national trend to improve science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education.

A $75,000 grant from the Mee Foundation has supported the district’s plan to install an equipped classroom – known as a STEM Lab – for the specialized integrated curriculum.

Technology Director Dave Sullivan reports that all necessary equipment, wiring and software for the STEM lab has been installed. Faculty training is underway.

STEM educational offerings, under the guidance of science teacher Bonnie Burgess, have been expanded to include students in the second and third grades. Eventually, the program will teach STEM principles to students in kindergarten through grade 12.
