Educators Attend STEM Conference

Posted: Updated:

The push to incorporate science, technology, engineering and math courses in school continues. Friday at Florida State University Panama City, educators gathered to learn and renew STEM curriculum.

Project Lead The Way is the leading provider of STEM programs used in middle and high schools in the United States.

PLTW held a conference Friday to continue it's STEM initiative in the area. Educators from as far away as Duval and Escambia County came to Bay County to learn and refresh these PLTW courses to bring back to their schools.

"The more our students can be interested the more they can be successful and access these careers which are out there and generally pay relatively well and we need them," says the Affiliate Director Ginger Littleton.

Also discussed at the conference, how important STEM careers are for our military.
