The Dayton Regional STEM School has opened the doors to a 30,000-square-foot building expansion that includes an educational outreach center for gaming software and programming aimed at Air Force training. The Ohio STEM School and the Air Force Research Laboratory partnered to co-locate the Gaming Research Integration for Learning Laboratory, or GRILL, last October. The Air Force allocated nearly $2 million to pay for equipment and staff. According to the Air Force Research Lab, the goal of the Learning Laboratory is to "serve as a national authority on the integration and application of game-based technology to address USAF education and training needs. In addition to leveraging off-the-shelf technology to benefit warfighter training, our goal is to inspire student interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), specifically modeling and simulation, and to equip the next-generation defense workforce."
