B&W Y-12 recently donated the second $100,000 of a $400,000 commitment to support the B&W Y-12 Chemistry Laboratory. The laboratory, which has been named after B&W Y-12, is located at the L&N STEM Academy in Knoxville.
This donation is meant to help address the growing demand for technical skills and is to be used to set up the school’s lab.
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Knoxville’s STEM Academy is located at the historic L&N building in the World’s Fair Park.
