Emerald Coast Post of The Society of American Military Engineers Supports Destin MS's STEM Initiative

The Emerald Coast Post of The Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) has presented Destin Middle School with a $500.00 donation for the advancement of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

SAME is a professional military engineering association in the United States which unites architecture, engineering, construction (A/E/C), facility management and environmental entities and individuals in the public and private sectors to prepare for—and overcome—natural and manmade disasters, and to improve security at home and abroad.

The local Emerald Coast Post of SAME has a mission to promote STEM advancement in our area schools for the development of the next generation of scientists and engineers.

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 5th grade classes and they will provide the students with hands-on experiments to enhance the curriculum that is being covered in the classrooms. Students will participate in a wide variety of experiments which are aligned to cover the Common Core National Standards which is part of the College and Career Ready Initiative.
