Groton Area News

The Groton Area School District is excited to announce that we have been selected as a recipient of a 2022 Career and Technical Education (CTE) Innovative Equipment grant award of over $236,000 from the South Dakota Department of Education which will fund equipment for a brand new state-of-the-art health science simulation lab at Groton Area Middle/High School.

With the South Dakota Department of Education CTE Innovative Equipment Grant, dreamed and written by Groton Area teacher, Mrs. Becky Hubsch, Groton Area High School will transform an out-of-commission science room into a state-of-the-art health science simulation laboratory.  The simulation laboratory will be equipped with hand-on, realistic health science equipment, including South Dakota’s first SynDaver anatomy model, made from materials that imitate live human tissue, a Nursing Anne Simulator, and a Nurse Anne Trainer for students to learn optimal patient care.

The new health science simulation laboratory will allow student to reach beyond their potential in hands-on learning and emerge with workforce skills that will elevate their learning experiences and, overall, better prepare students for any post-secondary health science education or workforce career they wish to achieve.

The health science simulation laboratory will be operational in August 2023.

It's a great day to be a Groton Area Tiger!
