STEM Center

Find where you belong as you complete your STEM life at STCC!

Funded by a U.S. Department of Education HSI STEM grant, the STEM Center was created to encourage the study of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). We offer services and academic support for all students taking STEM classes, as well as collaborative spaces for group study, tutoring, supplemental instruction, and group meetings. You can succeed in STEM! You can find us in Putnam Hall (B17), Room 425.

Career Exploration

Curious about what you need to be a STEM major? Do you want to know more about STEM careers? An academic advisor schedules one-on-one meetings and group sessions with students to explore their options.

Exam Proctoring

Students enrolled in various STEM classes can drop into the STEM Center for quiz or exam make-ups. A STEM Center staff will proctor while you work.

Class Support

Tutors in various STEM courses are available for one-on-one and group tutoring sessions. Supplemental instruction leaders also hold SI sessions in the STEM Center.

Students interested in scheduling an appointment with a STEM Center tutor should contact stemcenter@stcc.edu. Please let us know the days and times you are available, along with the course and professor for which you are seeking support.

Appointments are available between Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Once an appointment is made, the student and the tutor will receive an email confirmation with the tutor’s name, containing appointment details. A Google calendar reminder will also be sent to the student and the tutor. When the student accepts the reminder by clicking YES, a Google Hangouts link will be available to them in the calendar. Students will use that link to meet up with their assigned tutor during the designated day and time. Students should go to the Online & Digital Resources site to learn more about how to use Google Hangouts.

For more information, please reach out to the STEM Center (stemcenter@stcc.edu).
