A local news outlet wrote a story on the benefits the EvolvingSTEM program grants to students who take the course.
The EvolvingSTEM program has spread to multiple school districts which have found that the hand-on experience provided by EvolvingSTEM has been more engaging and memorable to students than a simple course. The Cooperlab is an integral part of the program, and has made great strides towards making EvolvingSTEM more accessible to any school district willing to host EvolvingSTEM.
