Hundreds turn out to "pack the bus" | Schools
SALISBURY - Hundreds of families turned out on Saturday to pack the newest bus in the Rowan-Salisbury School system fleet, only this one isn't yellow.
It was the community unveiling of the STEM bus that focuses on education involving Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. The bus is filled with labs and high tech equipment to give elementary school students the chance to try the latest technology.
The school system plans to keep the bus on the road, visiting all of the elementary schools in the county. The bus will stay at each school for a week or so, until each student has a chance to go through and use the various tools.
The bus display on Saturday was held at Knox Middle School and Horizons Unlimited. It also included several workshops and displays set up classrooms in the school and Horizons.
