EL PASO - EPISD students will get a more hands-on experience in their science class.
Construction on a new state of the art greenhouse began today.
With the help of the Department of Defense, the plants grown here will help students learn more about biology and plants in the classroom.
They're hoping this will encourage more kids to pursue careers in math and science.
The greenhouse is being built with money from the D.O.D. at the old Wainwright Elementary School on Lawrence Avenue.
