MERIDIAN --Treasure Valley schools have a new mobile resource to help children learn science, technology and engineering.

The J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation and Discover Technology unveiled the bus, known as  "Treasure Valley 1" on Monday morning in Meridian.

What was once a public transit bus is now the newest tool in Discover's fleet of STEM Mobile Discovery Labs.

It features 22 workstations and room for instructors.

"Our goal is to take student by student, put them in an experience where it's just a spark that happens for them that I can build a robot, I can do C programming, I can do this," said Cindy Esposito, Discover Technology.

Discover plans to take "Treasure Valley 1" to schools across the valley over the next three days, starting Tuesday.
