    Teachers in some rural counties of Florida are facing difficulties when engaging their students in science. Equipment in some schools can be so outdated, that it can take up to an entire class session just to boot up a computer. Student projects and labs are forced to remain simple, not because the students can't understand the science, but due to the lack of equipment.

    The STEM...
