Jamestown Public Schools
Jefferson and Persell Middle School technology students had an opportunity to visit Jamestown BPU and Cummins Engine as part of collaboration with The Resource Center (TRC), Jamestown Public Schools and Dream it Do it of WNY. The collaborative program was designed to help expose Jamestown Public School middle school students to technology.
As part of the project, TRC donated grant money that allowed two middle schools to hold after school technology clubs at Persell and Jefferson Middle Schools. The clubs met last year and worked on technology projects, which they displayed at the JCC STEM Wars.
The goal of the collaboration was to prepare Jamestown students to be contributing members of the community and open their eyes to the many different jobs that are accessible to them.
