NOW: Cass Street Elementary School opens new STEM Center

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee students have a new place to get comfortable with science and math, the so-called "STEM" studies.

There was a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday for the new STEM Center at Cass Street Elementary School. 

It's a technology lab that gives kids a chance to work with computers, 3D printers, robots and other things that could be a big part of their futures.

"We want to make sure that our young people are exposed early," said MPS Superintendent Dr. Keith Posley. "Especially our young females, to get an opportunity to get their hands wet with some of the ideas around the concepts of STEM, because there's a number of careers in STEM."

Rockwell Automation and the Boys and Girls clubs of Milwaukee are part of the team that helped MPS get this STEM Center opened.
