Local students prepare to present new STEM knowledge

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON -

Ten students from the Tucson area got a unique experience at the University of Arizona that's preparing them for the future.  

Through a $5.4 million federal grant, the high school students learned about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) careers of today and tomorrow.  

The students from Sunnyside, Pueblo, Tucson Magnet and Sahuarita high schools will give presentations on their research experience Friday at the UA College of Pharmacy’s Drachman Building.  

“(I’m) very impressed with the students. They started off unsure of what to expect, and somewhat intimidated by their labs,” said Benjamin Richmond from the UA College of Pharmacy.  “As the four weeks progressed, I could see (their confidence) grow.”

This experience was possible through Youth Career Connect, a department funded by the U.S. Department of Labor.
