OKLAHOMA CITY – It is being called a transformational step for 33 public elementary schools in Oklahoma as organizers plan to build new Ripken STEM Centers in each school.

Each center will feature trained teachers and hands-on technology for STEM learning.

The centers are possible thanks in part to the generosity of the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation in partnership with the Foundation for Oklahoma City Public Schools and a few other sponsors.
