Igniting with STEAM

Goal: Produce a well-educated, highly skilled, qualified workforce

Partners: Boone County School System, St. Elizabeth Healthcare, Duke Energy, Toyota

Thanks to business and education partners who collaborated on workforce solutions, Northern Kentucky has an exciting new STEAM-based high school, beginning August, 2019. Students enrolled in The IGNITE Institute at Roebling Innovation Center will build a skillset that can be put to work by employers throughout Northern Kentucky. With a focus on project-based learning in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics, IGNITE will strengthen our local workforce well into the future. Construction of this innovative education center has already begun, thanks to the facility donation by Toyota. The Regional Alliance provided financial support for hiring IGNITE’s Executive Director, assisted with the search for the new Principal, and will stay involved in future development.
