Kent County Prepared To Commit To STEM Programs

Kent County says it is prepared to commit to STEM academies at KCHS and CMS, even if it does not get state funding. Kent County is looking for $100,000 from the state, the maximum allowed. In the STEM programs (short for science, technology, engineering and mathematics), students get their own laptops and learn to gather knowledge beyond books and videos. Nearly 100 students from eighth grade on have been accepted into the program.
