STEAM Academy

In the TV show “Shark Tank,” aspiring entrepreneurs pitch their ideas for new products.  Their goal, impress them enough to secure a source of money for their future enterprise. A local group used this premise to teach students about business.

Freshmen at Lexington’s STEAM Academy are taking part in a Shark Tank-style competition for the Lexington Legends Thursday and Friday.

It’s back to the drawing board for officials with the Fayette County Public Schools STEAM Academy. The special program focusing on science, technology, math, engineering, arts, and mathematics was expected to take up residence at a University of Kentucky-owned site off Scott Street, but those plans have been shelved.
