Destin Middle receives donation for STEM

Special to The Log

The Emerald Coast Post of The Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) presented Destin Middle School with a $500 donation for the advancement of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) on Nov. 12.

A parent nominated Mrs. Pack to receive $500 to be used for science and technology. Destin Middle School intends to use the funds to purchase electricity value kits. These kits will be used by the science teachers for all the fifth grade classes. They will provide the students hands on experiments to enhance the curriculum that is being covered in the classrooms.

The experiments are aligned so they cover the Common Core National Standards which is part of the College and Career Ready Initiative.
