PLAQUEMINE - The Iberville Parish School System has opened its new $2.4 million Science, Technology, Engineering and Math learning center.
Project manager Patrick Norris said the new 11,000-square-foot center took a little more than a year to construct.
Five classrooms were added to the Math, Science and Arts Academy-West campus, one of them a fully equipped chemistry laboratory.
Elvis Cavalier, chief academic officer for the school system, said some 1,370 students are enrolled at MSA-West Academy, including many who also attend classes at Louisiana State University.
