Local S.T.E.M mobile lab encourages kids to get involved in science

Posted:
WESTON, Wis. (WAOW) -

The S.T.E.M Scouts in Weston has a bus filled with technology to help boys and girls of all ages get involved in S.T.E.M programs.

The Samoset Council Vortex S.T.E.M mobile lab was brought in 2016. It's one of five organizations in the country who have it.

Inside the lab are laptops, tablets, robots and a 3D printer. 

It was donated by the Paul and Ruth Schultz Foundation in Wausau. 

"Gets a lot of kids interested in science, technology, engineering and math," said S.T.E.M executive Amanda Flannery.

Scout members like Claire Pfotenhauer and Rachel Wachsmuth are both interested in the program.

"I love science," Wachsmuth said. She's has been a S.T.E.M scout for two years.

Flannery said the hands-on experience is what kids need these days in order to have a better understanding of what the program is all about.

For more information about the S.T.E.M mobile lab and how to get involved you can visit the The Samoset Council's website.
