New beginnings on part of the University of Vermont campus.
Two newly renovated buildings opened Thursday. They make up the first phase of the University’s more than $100 million STEM complex.
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math.
University leaders say the new facility will benefit all students, as well as other young people who aren’t in college yet.
“It also will serve as a great attractor for young people in the state of Vermont to come learn about and experience and touch computing and math and engineering and science.” Said Provost & Senior VP of the University of Vermont David Rosowsky.
The complex is the biggest construction project in the University’s history.
It’s expected to be finished by May of 2019.
