KINGSTON, LUZERNE COUNTY
A middle school in our area is currently going through a high-tech transformation.
The new hybrid learning center at Wyoming Valley West Middle School in Luzerne County is geared towards getting more students interested in science and technology.
The Wyoming Valley West Educational Foundation presented the school with 50 brand new desktop computers for its new STEM program.
School officials say one of the goals of the new program is to give students the opportunity to use the technology they are learning about, instead of just reading about it.
“We’re really trying to promote science and technology and the engineering component..to give them an advantage, to make them marketable once they graduate high school,” said Charles Suppon, superintendent of schools.
“It was a great experience because I got to learn a lot about technology, which I am very interested in,” said student Brendan Woods.
School officials are hoping to get additional computers so that more students can participate in the program.
