STEM Day at STCC
As part of Massachusetts STEM Week, Springfield Technical Community College on Oct. 23 will host an event to showcase the wide variety of science, technology, engineering and mathematics programs at the college. Designed to be fun and educational, the “STEM Day” event is geared toward local high school students and STCC students with undeclared majors, said Barbara Washburn, Interim Dean for the School of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. The public also can attend to learn about the programs. “This is a wonderful introduction to our new School of STEM, which has over 28 programs” Washburn said. “We are thrilled to host the event, which will give students a chance to learn about our STEM programs. The School of STEM at STCC offers pathways to careers in high-demand fields. People who attend STEM Day can talk to faculty and students in mechanical engineering technology, architecture and building technology, landscape design and management, and much more. We also have invited industry representatives.” STEM Day at STCC will take place Oct. 23, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., with activities in the Scibelli Hall Gymnasium (Building 2) and on the Seventh Floor of the building.
