Federal grant to expand STEM education for Albuquerque students

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A federal grant is about to help better prepare Albuquerque students for careers in science, technology, engineering and math.

Nearly $8 million will go towards expanding STEM education with new labs at Mission Avenue Elementary, Garfield Middle and Valley High School.

APS says it’s part of the district’s push to create more magnet schools, catered to students’ particular goals.

“It is capturing what out students want and then offering it a situation like this where they really get hooked on learning,” APS Superintendent Raquel Reedy said.

The money will pay for equipment to round out STEM labs and programs already in the works.
