Senator Shaheen talks with students at Hubbard Brook

Senator Jeanne Shaheen visited the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest on Monday to highlight her legislation to give high school students greater access to innovative STEM education programs.

“To stay ahead of our global competitors like China, and to prepare our young people for the jobs of tomorrow, we must support science and technology education today,” Shaheen said.  “Hubbard Brook is doing great work to help teachers present science in new, innovative ways to our students.  We need to do more of that, which is why I introduced the Innovation Inspiration School Grant Program.

While at Hubbard Brook, Senator Shaheen spoke with teachers, middle school students and researchers about the long-term research and importance of science education. Read more here.
