Holyoke students receive new science equipment from STEM grant

A grant of nearly $190k was received from the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center and the Baker-Polito Administration to go towards Holyoke Public Schools.  The grant will be used to purchase classroom equipment for middle and high school classrooms to improve access to STEM education for students. The funds so far have allowed Holyoke Public Schools to purchase probeware equipment for students in grades six through twelve, to have access to “professional-level scientific equipment” and provide them an environment which immerses them into the world of STEM and develop a deeper understanding of the scientific process. Students are provided access to “precise and accurate data from experiments they run, allowing them to analyze and interpret the data in real-time through sophisticated hardware and software.”
