STEM Foundations (SEM 130) is a hands-on introduction to the STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) that are so critical to life and careers in the 21st Century. Working in teams just as they would in the workplace, students gather information from field trips, lectures, visiting experts, and their own research as they explore cross-disciplinary solutions to real-world problems. Topics include environmental science, genetics, biotechnology, earth science, astronomy and engineering along with the mathematics, chemistry and physics to support them.
Students who successfully complete this class and meet attendance requirements are eligible for a $250 stipend. Only 50 seats available • Sign up soon!
The class runs from July 6 - August 6.
|MTW||8:30 a.m. to noon|

In 2014, HCC and other community colleges received grant funds from the Department of Higher Education to establish a STEM Academy. The purpose was to support community colleges in their efforts to recruit, retain and graduate significantly more students in STEM pathway programs leading to job placement or college transfer to higher level STEM academic programs. HCC's STEM Academy goals are to:
