Public School 197 Awarded Grant to Build STEM Lab

 November 2, 2017

Members of the PS 197 community attended an award ceremony today to accept $285,000 in funds to be used to establish a STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) Lab on the fifth floor of the building. The funding was awarded by Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams. 

PS 197 submitted a proposal last year requesting money to install a Maker Space, purchase portable technology stations and 3D printers. With the addition of this equipment, the school will be able to join the Brooklyn Engineering Pipeline, a multi-school effort to provide STEM skills for students from “cradle to college”.
