Gov. Tom Wolf's administration toured an Elk County school Tuesday to speak with students about STEM education. Department of Community and Economic Development Deputy Secretary for Business Financing Carol Kilko and Department of Labor & Industry Deputy Secretary for Workforce Development Eileen Cipriani toured St. Marys Area High School. The secretaries saw classes the school has to offer including robotics, metal working, the nurse's aid program and a smart lab. "Our certified nurses aid program is students providing for the local medical community," said Superintendent Dr. Brian Toth. "Students out of high school who can work as a nurses aid. Maybe they do it as a full-time job or while they're going to college." The visit is part of Gov. Wolf's Statewide Workforce, Education and Accountability Program SWEAP.

They said SWEAP will build on the success of last year's PAsmart initiative, which was a $30 million investment.
