BCCC welcomed student science and math wizards and their variety of fascinating projects on Saturday, November 22, 2014 to the college’s second annual STEM Community Day. In addition to drawing some 300 attendees from BCCC and the Baltimore community, the occasion was the perfect opportunity for students to meet with representatives from area colleges and universities, companies involved in the STEM fields and BCCC STEM faculty and staff.

John Lucas, a military veteran who drove a truck for 15 years before enrolling in the STEM Scholars program, plans to use what he learned at BCCC to attend the University of Baltimore. Raphael Outlaw, vice president of the student Engineering Club, attended no formal high school before enrolling at BCCC but says the STEM Scholars gave him much-needed direction.

For more information about the BCCC STEM Scholars program, where students are eligible for up to $4,150 per academic year in scholarships, contact Professor Marianna Gleger at 410-462-7790.
