Details: PhRMA will present a $2,000 grant to Sparks High School to support STEM programs. The school was nominated by Nevada Assemblyman Mike Sprinkle to receive the grant, which will help purchase equipment and technology for the Sparks High School Manufacturing Academy.


The Academy provides opportunities for students and staff to immerse in 21st Century teaching and learning.


Editors’ Note: The biopharmaceutical industry is anticipating a gap between the number of available jobs and the people who are trained to fulfill them. There are a number of jobs available for trained applicants with varying educational levels from high school to Ph.D. The STEM Student Pipeline Grant program supports STEM programs throughout the country.


PhRMA represents leading biopharmaceutical research companies. Since 2000, PhRMA member companies have invested more than $600 billion in researching treatments and cures.


The STEM Student Pipeline Grant program is dedicated to encouraging students to pursue STEM careers.


Assemblyman Sprinkle, staff members, and students will be available for interviews following the presentation. Media contact at the event is Sparks High School Principal Kevin Carroll.
