The Rotary Club of East Aurora donated $13,000 to the East Aurora Middle School STEAM lab. The lab focuses on efforts to expand learning in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.  

The East Aurora club is also applying for a grant from Rotary International to provide additional funds for the STEAM program in 2018. In addition, the club will be working hard on fund raising throughout 2018 with hopes of making a similar donation for this program in 2019.

The Rotary club has learned about the STEAM programs starting at Parkdale Elementary to the East Aurora high school from meetings with East Aurora school administrators and technology teachers. With hundreds of East Aurora students using the STEAM lab at the middle school annually, the donations from the Rotary Club can be used to help purchase computers and related equipment for our East Aurora students.
