South Mountain Community College Partners with Si Se Puede Foundation to Offer STEM Programming to Area High School Students
On Wednesday, September 30, South Mountain Community College announced a partnership with the Si Se Puede Foundation to offer a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Robotics program to local high school students.
“STEM skills are becoming increasingly necessary to give youth a path to success,” said South Mountain President Shari Olson. “Through this partnership, we will be able to offer engaging, hands-on learning that will get them excited about STEM majors and careers.”
According to US2020, more than nine million STEM professionals will be needed by 2022. Providing opportunities like the STEM Robotics exposes today’s youth to engineering, physics and calculus so that they can learn skills needed to navigate an ever increasingly complicated and technology driven world.
The South Phoenix STEM Robotics program kickoff event will be held on November 6, 2015 from 8:00 a.m. to 1 p.m. Ninth graders can apply with their Counseling office.
