Recently, the Rotary Club of East Aurora donated $13,000 to the East Aurora Middle School STEM lab.  The lab focuses on efforts to expand learning in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.  
The club is also applying for a Rotary grant to provide additional funds for the STEM program, along with its own fundraising efforts.  The club has learned about the STEM programs starting at Parkdale Elementary to the East Aurora High School from meetings with East Aurora school administrators and technology teachers. With hundreds of East Aurora students using the STEM lab at the middle school annually, the donations from the club can be used to help purchase computers and related equipment for our East Aurora students.
