BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - Plans are underway for a new Innovation/STEM center for Broken Arrow High School students.
The $21 million project was approved as part of the 2015 voter approved bond.
The school board approved the architect and construction company at its latest board meeting on Monday.
The project will be finalized in a year, built the following year and ready for students by fall 2021.
The center will be a state-of-the art facility encompassing all things STEM. Lessons will be project-based and take place both inside and outside of the classroom.
It will facilitate around 700 students at a time, so it will help alleviate some crowding concerns at the high school.
Oklahoma Teacher of the Year Donna Gradel said the Innovation Center is a dream come true. She’s been working with district leaders for years to help come up with what the center should include.
