Taylorville Junior High School students will get to learn about the latest in STEM technology with the addition of a new STEM lab this school year. STEM, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, was a priority junior high teachers decided on last school year.
Cindy Wagner is a 7th and 8th grade science teacher at TJHS. She says in addition to the STEM classwork, the school is looking at creating an after school club involving STEM technology as well.
Wagner says she believes giving students access to this technology now will give them confidence using new technology as it becomes available.
The school will have an open house to show the STEM lab to the public on Thursday, September 14 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
