STEM Schools for Ohio Students

STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. STEM schools offer a rigorous, diverse, and project-based curriculum that encourages young people to be innovative in how these courses can promote economic progress.

By the end of this year, two STEM model schools will be in operation in Cincinnati: Taft Elementary and Hughes High School.

The partners in the project hope that this type of an education will enhance economic vitality across southwestern Ohio. The partners include Cincinnati Public Schools, the University of Cincinnati, Procter and Gamble, GE and Duke Energy.

On this episode of Focus, three educators discuss how STEM is benefiting Cincinnati's students and how teachers are being groomed to provide a more specialized education for their students.
