News story:  Digital workshop exposed students to the art of math and science,The Daily News, February 3, 2014

All students, not just the top 5 or 10 percent, must gain deep knowledge and strong skills in science and math by the time they graduate from high school.

LCC has demonstrated a commitment to these programs by entering into partnerships and hosting special events at the college and in the community.

We reach out to the K-12 community through fun, hands-on, creative activities showcasing science, technology, math and engineering concepts.

Our goal is to share with the K-12 community what Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) is, and help them understand how it relates to their everyday world. We really want to inspire students to envision their future to include STEM, and to excite their natural curiosity and creativity for a better world.
