Struthers steps up STEM studies in all classes



Published: Wed, July 23, 2014 @ 3:13 p.m.

STRUTHERS — Beginning this fall, science, technology, engineering and mathematics will no longer be limited to their respective courses for the district’s students in kindergarten through fourth grade.

Instead, thanks in part to new curriculum materials, the purchase of which was approved at Tuesday’s regular meeting of the Struthers Board of Education, all classes across the disciplines will be infused with STEM.

“If we don’t [make this change], our kids lose, and they will leave this place,” said Joseph Nohra, superintendent of Struthers City Schools, addressing the school board.

Nohra explained the district’s purchase of materials from the Pittsburgh-based ASSET STEM Education is necessary. The investigative, hands-on approach it touts is “more in line with the new Common Core” standards than traditional teaching methods.
