Second year of ML's STEM grant builds on foundation
Last year, the Medical Lake School District was busy gearing up for its first year heavily immersed in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
This summer will be just as busy as the school district moves into the second of its three-year STEM grant from the Department of Defense.
The grant is helping fund a math and study skills class to all incoming eighth-graders and freshmen who might be interested in boosting some of their skills. The hands-on program focuses on developing math skills and placing an emphasis on how it relates to the real world outside of school.
