District Hosts Public Opening of Gateway to Technology Lab
On Tuesday, January 10th, the Cuyahoga Heights Schools held a special ceremony to introduce the Gateway to Technology Lab to the public. Featuring computers and a 3-dimensional printer, the Gateway to Technology lab promotes science and technology for middle and high school students, and was funded through grants received in the amount of $30,000 by Cuyahoga Valley Career Center and $20,000 by ArcelorMittal. Elected officials from all three villages were in attendance, as well as Summer Paris, Corporate Responsibility and Communications Manager for ArcelorMittal Cleveland. The presentation included opening remarks by Superintendent Tom Evans, followed by a summary of the grants obtained to fund the lab by Director of Administrative Services, Dr. Ted Caleris. High School Principal Matt Young and Instructor Brooke Keller provided an overview of the exciting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) based learning opportunities offered through various lab-based courses. 7th graders Delayne DiSanza, Alexandria Krocker, Nolan Frye, Dominic Belko, Charlie Dalton and Brady Pinter then presented on several projects they completed over the past semester using the state-of-the-art technology and computer programs featured in the lab. The Cuyahoga Heights Schools would like to thank everyone who attended for supporting our students and helping to make the event a success!
