SALAMANCA — All are welcome to join the Salamanca City Central School District for the ribbon-cutting ceremony and tour of the new STEAM facility at Salamanca High School at 10 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 6.

It was nearly a year ago when school leaders, the board of education and renovations committee members came together to break ground on the high school’s new Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) addition.

This November, crews are nearing the final phase of the 2018 voter-approved referendum and will open the new wing for the 2019-20 school year.

The STEAM addition will bring the school facilities to a whole new level by adding modern classrooms and laboratories for hands-on work in such areas as advanced manufacturing, industrial engineering, robotics, electronics, computer science, graphic design, applied math, 2-D and 3-D art and computer-aided design.

The state-of-the-art STEAM addition elevates the high school to an even playing field by introducing students to the technology and work environments they will see in college labs and modern workplaces.

Join the Board of Education, school leaders and dignitaries on Friday, Dec. 6 at 10 a.m. for the ribbon-cutting ceremony and tour of the new state-of-the-art facility.
