HCC Ushers students towards STEM fields during STEM Summer Academy

Volunteers with expertise in various STEM fields served as teachers and mentors for students across the Houston area. They exposed them to robotics, programming, forensic science, mechanical engineering, and even biology. The weeklong camp at Alief-Taylor High School offered students a unique opportunity to learn about various aspects of STEM. They also heard from a special guest speaker, an agent with the FBI.
