Bangor High School Receives $750K STEM Grant

BANGOR - Bangor High School is getting a major grant to give students a valuable experience in the math and science fields.

The school has been awarded $750,000 through a National Science Foundation grant to study storm water runoff, and how it affects pollution in rivers, streams, and other waterways.

The three year grant will allow high school students to work with the University of Maine's College of Engineering as well as local water districts and other schools, to prepare them for careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

The program will include 60 students and 15 teachers from around the state, and will be held this summer at the University of Maine.
