Dropping In on STEM Education

An education partnership is looking to increase interest in STEM programs among area middle school students by literally dropping in at some local schools. The Drop Anywhere Lab is being used by the education non-profit Learning Undefeated to help grow kids’ interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Learning Undefeated has partnered with Astra Zeneca and the WRK Group (Reach Riverside and The Warehouse) to bring the Drop Anywhere Lab to several schools over the next several weeks.
