Lockheed Martin has donated $150,000 to Broome-Tioga BOCES as they look to start a science, technology, engineering, and math, or STEM, hub. The STEM Hub of the Eastern Southern Tier will be created as part of BOCES’ School to Careers Partnership, which will fund the development of teaching and learning activities for teachers and students in the STEM fields. BOCES also hopes that the hub will generate more interest among students in the region in the science and math fields, while also being able to equip students with the necessary skills that businesses in the field desire. Lockheed Martin hopes that the funding will allow for the hub to succeed, and in doing so, create a pipeline of future employees for companies including the defense contractor. Broome-Tioga BOCES has fifteen component districts, including Owego-Apalachin, Newark Valley, and Tioga Center.
