STEM Lab

In September of 2022, Linton Middle School unveiled a brand new state of the art STEM Lab (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).

A Ready to Learn grant from the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation financed the lab. The goal of the organization, which is named after the late father of baseball star Cal Jr., is "providing safe opportunities for children in need to acquire vital life skills, establish character, engage constructively with local law enforcement, and learn to make positive future choices." 

The $35,000 award was matched by the district to pay for the construction of the lab, as well as its furnishings, equipment, and supplies. The facility offers several STEM-related educational possibilities, such as a 3D printer, work tables, and equipment. The Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation will continue supporting the center as it moves forward.

The opening of the STEM lab is critically important, because these are the key areas of learning that kids need engaged in and to be working in when they advance to the high school level and beyond. It’s important to get them acclimated to this type of education. “What’s nice about this is that it’s a learning program, but it’s fun for the students as well, and it lets the kids experiment and bring out a creative side that helps them want to continue to participate in this space moving forward. Engaging them at this moment in time is critically important for their future development.”Jay Costa, PA State Senator
