This week the American Museum of Science and Energy (AMSE) celebrated Black History Month by posting a video of Museum Director Alan Lowe and 55-year veteran of the DOE community Harold Conner Jr., along with UCOR’s Sonya Johnson and Marty Lowe, President of MSi Workforce Solutions. Connor discusses growing up in the 1950s and being the only Black student in his engineering school. It is a fascinating discussion.
Teachers in three Morgan County schools have fascinating new tools to add to their educational arsenals, thanks in large part to Roane State Community College. The Lab-in-a-Box program was launched by the East Tennessee Economic Council in 2010 as part of the Rural Communities STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Initiative.
