The STEM building is estimated to cost about $20 million and they expect to break ground in February.

It will have everything from biology labs to a 3D printer and robotics lab.

Construction on this new building won't have any affect on school repairs, and money for it comes from the half cent sales tax, which can't go toward Hurricane Michael repairs.

"We've still got to take care of fixing everything while at the same time, not forgetting to look forward and see where the school district is going as a whole. This is a project that we had hoped to start before the hurricane, it did get put on hold for a while. We're wrapping up repairs on that campus, and this is time to start moving on to the next," said the Director of Facilities for Bay District Schools Lee Walters.
