(AP) — About $500,000 in private gifts is helping to support science, technology, engineering and math education programs at West Virginia University.

Officials say the donations through the WVU Foundation's State of Minds will support scholarships and the renovation of a learning laboratory classroom in Allen Hall.

It also will help introduce innovative technology in the College of Education and Human Services professional development school classrooms in northern West Virginia.

Dean Lynne Schrum says the college's goal is to make sure that more students understand the intersection and importance of these fields for the country's future.
