VG)--Enid Public Schools secondary teachers will continue to provide STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) instruction thanks to a donation from Vance Air Force Base. Vance has given the district over $45,000 through the Air Force STEM grant program in the last three years. The funds have primarily been for Fab Labs, or digital fabrication laboratory, in the district, which provide access to the environment, the skills, the materials and the advanced technology to allow anyone anywhere to make (almost) anything. With 3.5 million STEM jobs needing to be filled by 2025, Vance officials say they are thrilled to provide more opportunities to EPS students to generate more interest in the field. This year, the district will use the money for the Flight and Space Module in Project Lead the Way classes at the middle schools.
