Oldham County Schools new Engineering Academy program is highlighted in the Courier Journal. The hands-on nature of the class is seen as critical to the program's success. The program will launch in the fall, and will utilize the Project Lead the Way curriculum. The program is a part of the county's STEM (Science, Technology, Education and Math) initiative.
Oldham County Educational Foundation has added the STEM initiative to our key focuses. The foundation is providing funds to the program beginning in the 2014-15 budget year.
