Claremore Public Schools broke ground on Monday on its new state-of-the-art STEM Innovation Center at Claremore High School.
The district said the center will house tools and technology to inspire the next generation of engineers, doctors, graphic designers and others entering STEM careers.
"So, really it is application of knowledge,” Superintendent Bryan Frazier said. “You know the way we acquire knowledge is so different now. Now you can Google anything but it’s really the application component. It's the creativity component. Those are the things we are really looking for the ability to be able to innovate."
The center should be finished by 2022.
