Mel Goodwin runs the STEM program at Laing Middle School of Science and Technology. It's a program that he was involved in creating nine years ago, and it's designed slightly differently from typical STEM curricula. Instead of a single STEM class, teachers are encouraged to incorporate STEM content into every class that is taught. "We have resources and facilities that are available throughout the school day to all teachers and students. This inclusiveness makes hands-on learning a must."
