Grant brings new technical opportunities to Southern Oregon students

ROBOT

Medford, Ore.–  A robotics class at North Medford High School is getting hands on learning experience with 3D printers and robots.

Those are just a few examples of what is to come thanks to an over $480,000 grant to the Southern Oregon Education Service District from the Oregon Department of Education.  The hope is to give local kids a great technical advantage.

“By having students engaged in career paths early,” says Scott Beveridge, the Superintendent for SOESD.  “We hope to jettison them past high school graduation into college and career increasing attendance and graduation rates.”

Also to come, new mobile lab classrooms that will carry these cutting edge tools to schools in the Grants Pass and Medford School Districts giving kids across Southern Oregon a chance to explore technology.
