NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee officials say they have landed $6.9 million in grants to aid in computer science and STEM education.

The state Department of Education says the money includes a $4 million Education Innovation and Research early phase grant and a $2.9 million Out-of-School Time Career Pathway Program grant.

The $4 million grant will help expand STEM and computer science education in 20 Tennessee high schools, including with work-based learning opportunities to earn postsecondary credits.

A competitive grant process to pick the schools will launch this summer.

The $2.9 million grant will expand computer science and STEM education in five rural school districts.
