Environmental Biotech Students Share Program with Governor, Business Leaders

Pontotoc Tech Center Environmental Biotechnology STEM Academy students shared information about their multi-disciplinary career and college pathway course with Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin, as well as members of the business community and school superintendents, on Feb. 11 at the Oklahoma Business Round Table. Hosted by the Francis Tuttle Rockwell campus in Oklahoma City, the Round Table highlighted hands-on learning programs in the state and their impact on business and industry.

The Environmental Biotechnology STEM Academy was established at the Pontotoc Technology Center in Ada, Oklahoma, in 2014 through a grant from the Oklahoma NSF EPSCoR program.
