Bluffton Middle School is now the eighth school in the district to earn a prestigious certification for STEM education. 

An outside team evaluated the school and announced the big news at the end of their visit. Beaufort County now has more STEM-certified schools than any district in South Carolina. STEM is education in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, and encourages hands-on learning. 

"I like how it's very hands-on because it's much more interesting than just reading about it, because you really don't get an understanding for it when you're doing that, so when you're doing it hands-on, you're like really understanding it," said Michelle Tamm, 6th Grade, Bluffton Middle School. 

The review team that visited Bluffton Middle School praised all the opportunities students had for self-direct learning.
