Florida Poly students help fill STEM learning gap from coronavirus


    Florida Polytechnic University is working to expand the STEM talent pipeline in local high schools, using its own students to help.

    The Lakeland-based university announced Thursday it is working with nine high schools throughout Florida to tutor their students in science, math, engineering and technology. The high school students will be tutored virtually by a dozen Florida Poly students, with the help of local online tutoring startup Knack. This is Knack’s first time working with Florida Polytechnic, which already contracts with colleges and universities across the nation.
