Swanson and Thompson Elementary schools in Arvada, Colorado, opened two new STEM Centers with great excitement this month.
Jefferson County School District is made of 155 schools. JeffCo plans on opening more STEM Centers: two more elementary schools, one middle school and one high school in the near future.
The current plan is to build K-12 STEM pathways. Implementing these STEM Centers is the beginning of a vision, where kids can have STEM learning incorporated all throughout their education so they graduate with everything they need to solve the problems of the future.
The education investments were made possible by partnering with a few organizations, including the Gill Foundation, JeffCo Public Schools and the JeffCo School Foundation.
