SOUTHBRIDGE — For some time, the doors have been opening to public involvement in science in various ways.

In the near future, Sarah Jordan, the school district's new ELL Director, hopes to promote that concept to get people involved in educating Southbridge's kids about science.

Jordan is applying for a $342,000 federal grant to start "an extended day and year-round learning program using arts and STEM," edu-speak for "science, technology, engineering and math." To help decide what to do with that money, she'd like to pull together a group of citizens with interest in the sciences as a de facto advisory committee. The idea is to have it start toward the end of October.
