“The Steubenville City Schools QZAB STEM+ Academy, through a partnership with NEF and SUNY, has created a model program that provides 21st century skills for our students in STEM, reading, career tech, IT, business and test prep. The Academy helps students build the skills they need to succeed in college and the highly competitive 21st-century workforce. Using our QZAB funds, at no out-out-of-pocket cost, we were able to provide an improved learning environment, and a world-class academy that helped to take our students from the bottom 50% to the top 30% in Ohio state test scores, while improving the attendance rates and enthusiasm levels of our students. In addition, our students can now earn college credits inexpensively from SUNY.” - Dr. Shana M. Wydra, Director of STEM Education, Steubenville City Schools, OH, 2017
