The city of Lawrence has been awared a $50,000 grant to develop and grow STEM programming for middle and high school aged kids. The grant comes from the Massachusetts LIfe Sciences Center, and it will be used to expand the Youth CITIES Life Sciences Learning Labs program into the Greater Lawrence area. Launching in the fall, this is a weekly program
One of the reasons Lawrence was selected for this grant was for the diversity that exists in the area. The program will help to reach people of many cultures and make STEM education and careers much more accessible to a population which does not always have such opportunities within easy reach for a variety of reasons crossing socio-economic strata.
We wish everyone involved the best of luck, and look forward to the success stories that are sure to come.
