Lemon Cove, CA – While the demand for students educated in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) is increasing, one South Valley school has begun expanding the intellect and imagination of its students through a robotics class and club.
Partnered with College of the Sequoias (COS), the Tulare County Office of Education (TCOE) opened University Prep High School (UPHS), a free public, high-learning school located on the COS campus in 2009. On Fridays, students in any high school grade level at the school can enroll in Josh Curtiss’ robotics class.
