Taylorville High School’s new STEM lab is in the final planning phases. Taylorville School District Superintendent Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau says the equipment for the lab needs to be ordered and renovation work will be done at the school over the summer.
Fuerstenau says there have been more donations made to make the high school STEM lab possible.
The STEM lab at Taylorville Junior High School has now been in place for one semester. Fuerstenau says not only can the high school look at the junior high as a model for their lab, but outside school districts are too.
Students at TJHS are succeeding in using the technology the STEM lab provides. Fuerstenau says some students even gave the school board a demonstration recently.
Fuerstenau says the district wants to have the THS STEM lab ready for students by next school year.
