Ohio Department of Health: Flu now widespread across Ohio

Vectren, Dayton Regional STEM School announce partnership

The Dayton Regional STEM School and Vectren Corp. are working together to further STEM — science, technology, engineering and math — education.

The partnership, offering a program called a “career tech pathway,” kicked off at the start of the 2016-17 school year.

“This new pathway is a crucial component of our ever-expanding career exploration model at (Dayton Regional STEM School) and will provide students with a head start in their post-secondary education,” Superintendent Robin Fisher said in a press release from the school. “We are extremely grateful to Vectren for investing in the program.”

“Vectren is proud to partner with the Dayton Regional STEM School to provide our region’s students with the building blocks to an engineering career and opportunities for career exploration in high-demand STEM fields,” Colleen Ryan, president of Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio, said in the same release. “A solid educational foundation is key to ensuring our students have access to and can succeed in local high-demand jobs.”

Two of the program’s courses, Principles of Engineering and Introduction to Engineering Design, are already offered. Two courses, Digital Electronics and Environmental Sustainability, are new this year.

Founded in 2009, the Dayton Regional STEM School includes grades 6-12 with nearly 650 students.
