GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - Congressman Scott Tipton was in Grand Junction Friday, touring the John McConnel Math and Science Center.
The tour displayed the Grand Valley's efforts to promote science and math in grades K-12, both in and out of the classroom.
The Math and Science Center also discussed their plans for expansion to join forces with the Dinosaur Journey Museum in Fruita.
"The United States, we're out of the top ten, in fact we're in the 20th percentile in terms of science and math and we've got to be able to find better ways to be able to reach our children. This is a great way, it's a discovery, to be able to make this exciting it's not just in a book but it's hands on," said U.S. Congressman Scott Tipton.
