More STEM Classes For DE Middle Schools

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. - More science, technology, engineering and math programs could soon be offered at Delaware middle schools.

Governor Jack Markell announced a partnership with businesses to give students more exposure to learning in the four STEM fields. Officials say the program will be made available to all middle schools in the first state, with priority given to the sixth-grade classes.

"We have a lot of open jobs in Delaware and across the country where we don't have the skill sets for so this is about queue up the next generation of folks for our workforce," said Rob Eppes of Junior Achievement of Delaware.

All Delaware schools will have the option to use the program as soon as next year. Officials expect it to be in high demand.
