 What does the STEM Program offer?
The STEM Program provides STEM students with free tutoring and Supplemental Instruction (SI) sessions  throughout the academic year to help students develop successful study skill habits. STEM students receive academic support through counselors specialized in STEM to help set educational goals. The STEM Counselors can assist with career exploration including personality/career interest assessments, college application workshops, resume/cover letter writing, soft skills education, scholarships, and internships.  Additionally, students will participate in STEM activities, events, and field trips intended to support and encourage students to persist in their chosen STEM majors.

Check Out Some of Our Work!

The SBVC STEM Cart Project

The STEM Cart Project at San Bernardino Valley College was able to contextualize principles of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics with a hands on golf cart rebuild project. Students and Faculty from various departments including Mathematics, Physics, and Applied Technology were tasked with breaking down an ordinary golf cart and rebuilding it using STEM principles. Faculty were able to discuss the project in their lectures and students were able to work on and see as the cart progressed through the various stages of completion. This process gave students a unique perspective on how classroom instruction applied in the field. The STEM cart will be used to highlight the relevancy of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics to our community while also showcasing the collaboration between faculty and students at San Bernardino Valley College. This project was funded by a US Department of Education Title III Hispanic Serving Institution STEM and Articulation Grant.
