Pinellas Ark Innovation Center in line for $1M

by The 100 Companies

The Senate has included in its supplemental funding $1 million for the Ark Innovation Center at Pinellas County Schools.

The “sprinkle list” funding is half what Republican Sen. Nick DiCeglie requested, but more than the $700,000 included in the approved main budget – the Senate’s original offer, which the House accepted.

The Ark Education Innovation Center will expose students to various technologies, such as robotics, artificial intelligence, energy storage, 3D printing, autonomous vehicle technology, space exploration, DNA sequencing, blockchain, next-gen internet and more.

The Ark Innovation Foundation, along with corporate leaders and the Pinellas County School District, would establish curriculum modules.
