BHP Stem Lab to provide job skills for students with disabilities

News

ANDERSON Co., SC (WSPA) – As students across the Upstate prepare to head back to school, one group of students in Anderson County are heading back to a new opportunity.

Belton-Honea Path High School built a brand new stem lab complete with 3-D printing, vinyl cutters and robotics. The catch is this lab is only for special education students.

It’s part of the states new credential program that allows these students to learn job skills to make them marketable after graduation rather than just receive an attendance certificate for their four years.

“We have an opportunity to create the future and that’s what we are doing with a population that has been left behind and hasn’t gotten to do these things they will have the opportunity to now do,” said Kim Wood, the special education teacher at BHP.

School officials believe this will be the only STEM Lab for students with disabilities in the state and they hope to see the program grow and their students succeed.
