OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Getting ahead in school may get a little easier for many Omaha kids this year, thanks to a special van.

Police and cheerleaders helped bring attention to the arrival of the STEM-Mobile. It's a van that will eventually be full of materials like a 3-D Printer, drone, and tablets needed for STEM activities at area Boys and Girls Clubs.

"These kids are going to be future app creators, web developers, camera men and women, so it's very important they know how these things function and operate." Andile Mahlangeni-Byndon, STEM Director of the Boys and Girls Club, said.

A grant from the Boys and Girls Club of America and Baxter Toyota made the STEM mobile possible.
