STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) is a national, regional and local initiative emphasizing the need to increase global competitiveness in these areas. As a result, workplace opportunities are growing for students seeking occupations in the STEM fields.
The AACC Regional STEM Center in collaboration with the Sarbanes Center engages students in active, hands-on experiences in the real world. Students can connect activities in community-based settings to issues and concepts in courses, gain valuable experience, and meet community needs.
STEM ENGAGED LEARNING supports:
- Internships - Work-based learning providing credit/non-credit and paid/unpaid experiences
- Research - Inquiry-based learning alongside a faculty mentor or field practitioner
- Service-learning - Community service-based learning connecting academic courses and faculty-guided reflection with nonprofit community partners
