GRANITE CITY, Ill. – State Rep. Katie Stuart, D-Edwardsville, visited Coordinated Youth and Human Services’ (CYHS) recently opened STEM lab this week to discuss the benefit of science-based programs for students with autism and other special needs.
“As a state representative and former math teacher, I know firsthand the importance of STEM programs in our schools,” Stuart said. “I am grateful for the work that Coordinated Youth and Human Services does in our community, and I am excited to see their new STEM lab making an impact on our students.”
CYHS is a local organization that provides educational, social and health services to individuals with special needs. The organization recently opened a new STEM lab in August of 2018 as part of their Educational Enhancement Program to further assist students in reaching their academic potential.
“The work that CYHS does here in our community is invaluable, and their new STEM lab will broaden the horizons of the students they serve,” Stuart said. “I look forward to hearing the many success stories of students who benefit from their program.”
