In January, the Campbell County School District Board of Trustees approved six new STEM labs for local elementary schools. Tonight, Feb. 26, the board will hear presentations from representatives of those schools who want to house one of the six new labs.
Right now, there are only eight elementary schools in the district that don’t already have a STEM lab on campus.
Discussion at the January meeting also mentioned the possibility of splitting up one STEM lab in an effort to make it a feasible option for those more rural schools with the smallest student populations.
Tonight’s school board meeting will begin at 4 p.m. in order for each school to be given equal time to present their cases for a lab.
Also at tonight’s meeting, Buffalo Ridge Elementary School sixth graders will share their STEM Day experience with the board.
