Collaborative learning activities to motivate High School students to excel in STEM areas
Create and expand awareness of STEM career opportunities in S.T.E.M. fields.
The Project’s goals are to:
- Provide students with the skills they need to succeed in S.T.E.M. fields at the community college level.
- Increase transfer rates to four year Colleges and Universities.
- Provide students with academic and support services.
- Provide students with the skills needed to enter the world-class STEM workforce.
STEM Innovation is a project at Passaic County Community College that focuses on student learning in the disciplines of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Funded by a grant from the US Department of Education, Title V Hispanic Serving Institutions, the project and its activities are designed to help students explore and ultimately choose careers in STEM fields.
STEM projects are real-life and multi-faceted. From robotics building to new habitat-seeking hikes, from studying forensics to understanding earthquake-proof buildings, the scope is far-ranging.
