In Rich Berenson and Peter Lohonyay’s STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) classes at Toledo Junior/Senior High School, students are learning about computer programming, construction, safety and motivation.

In its first year, the class has 24 students enrolled and for now, each of those students earn three credits – in mathematics, science and career technical education (CTE).
