Spring Mills High selected as one of four STEM high schools in West Virginia
The Education Alliance announced last week that Spring Mills High School, along with three other West Virginia high schools and four West Virginia middle schools, was selected to create model STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) programs that pioneer innovative STEM-education techniques and workplace learning experiences for students. These schools were identified through a rigirous selection process. This is a three year project intended to enhance the schools' current STEM efforts by enriching STEM curriculum and instruction, strengthening STEM business partnerships and identifying resources to build capacity over the course of the project.
"As we prepare our students to compete in today's global workforce, it is critical we continue to engage our students by providing increased access to science, technology, engrineering and math learning opportunities. West Virginia has a bright future, and we want to ensure our students have the skills employers need to fill the jobs we are creating. A strong background in STEM skills is a key part of that preparation." ~Gov. Tomblin
The STEM Network Schools program is made possible by the BelleJAR Foundation, the Chevron Foundation, the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation, the Corporation for National and Community Service, The Ross Foundation, and Southwestern Energy.
