Norwalk Community College offers free STEM program

Norwalk Community College (NCC)’s Connecticut Health and Life Sciences Career Initiative will offer a free Summer STEM Bridge Program for incoming college freshmen, June 30 to July 24.

With the global economy becoming more focused on science, technology, engineering and math, the NCC program will help students excel at college-level work and be posed for high-paying jobs in the nation’s fastest growing STEM fields.

“This program is a four-week immersion for potential STEM students who may enroll at NCC so that they have a realistic expectation of college level course work,” said Jonathan McMenamin-Balano, NCC biology professor and curriculum coordinator for the Connecticut Health and Life Sciences Career Initiative.

NCC’s Summer STEM Bridge Program will include four non-credit modules in environmental science, allied health, computer science and mathematics.

Taught by NCC professors, classes will meet from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and a light lunch will be provided each day.

Although the program is geared to NCC incoming freshmen, high school juniors and seniors who have demonstrated interest in the program will also be accepted.

Registration is limited and students will be accepted at a first come, first serve basis. The application deadline is Monday, June 23.
