Milwaukee School Opens New STEM Center

Cass Street School, a K4-8 school in Milwaukee, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Oct. 3 to debut their new STEM Center.

The STEM Center was funded by a $130,000 grant from local partner Rockwell Automation. Curriculum in the new STEM Center will be based in Project Lead The Way modules. PLTW offers hands-on learning for students in areas of engineering, robotics, biomedical science and computer science.

The STEM Center includes technology equipment like tablets, projectors, 3D printers and robotic equipment. The STEM Center is available to all Milwaukee Public School students and kids who are part of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee.

“This new STEM Center will truly support student achievement,” Superintendent Keith P. Posley said in a school press release. “Hands-on science not only gets students excited about learning, but propels learning and will help our students compete at the college and career levels.”
