The first of several community discussion meetings for the Southeast Tennessee STEM Initiative will take place this afternoon.

The Southeast Tennessee STEM Initiative aims to help the region receive a grant from the state to open a new science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, school. To receive the grant, school districts need to show a partnership between K-12 educational institutions and higher education institutions, businesses and philanthropic organizations.

Today's meeting will start at 1 p.m. and will take place at the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce on Broad Street, according to a news release.

Other discussion sessions will take place Thursday and Oct. 18, 25 and 27 at 9:30 a.m. at the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Business Development Center on Cherokee Boulevard, the release said.

More times may be added later.
