HANOVER — A new collaboration with Dartmouth College and the Montshire Museum of Science hopes to enhance STEM education in select middle schools in New Hampshire and Vermont where resources are stretched thin.

The Valley News reports the pilot program plans to connect Dartmouth professors and graduate students as well as educators from the Vermont museum with public school teachers to build STEM-focused lessons.

The five-year project is funded through a $1.3 million Science Education Partnership Award from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences.

The participating schools are the Claremont Middle School and Indian River Middle School in New Hampshire and The Tunbridge Central School and Barnet School, in Vermont.

The schools were selected based on their percentage of students in the federal free and reduced lunch program.
