STEMM Center receives jet engine from Eglin
OKALOOSA COUNTY -- Some middle school students in Okaloosa County now have a jet engine to learn with.
Airmen from Eglin Air Force Base delivered the engine today to the Okaloosa County STEMM Center.
The new middle school focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and Medical studies.
The school's director says it will be used to demonstrate a lot of different things, from how air pressure affects a motor to engineering and design.
The students think it's cool.
"I'm looking forward to the classes we're going to have learning about this. We can actually see what's going on as we're learning about it."
The STEMM Center plans to invite teachers from across the panhandle to use the jet engine in their own programs.
