Students in Pitt County are showcasing their work in STEM classrooms.

High school students at JH Rose in Greenville are part of a pilot program designed to bring STEM into the classroom.

Over $100,000 was invested in the program, which started at the high school this year. Students said the hands-on STEM lab helps them take their education to the next level.

“You gotta use more than a textbook to learn what you wanna do in life,” said Noah Romero, JH Rose junior. “This class gives you a hands-on experience and shows you what you would really be doing in the work world.”

Representatives from various school districts in the East toured the STEM lab, hoping to bring similar programs to other schools in the area.

Students in the STEM classes learn about architecture, construction technology, robotics and automation, and biotechnology.
