ACC Sponsors STEM Night

To encourage more participation in science programs, there will be a STEM Night event at Alvin Junior High School on February 15.

The event is hosted by Communities in Schools and is sponsored by Alvin Community College and NASA.

Workers with skills in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math are in high demand and STEM Night will highlight some of the career options.

Alvin ISD Communities in Schools Director Kam Marvel said the event is a chance for parents and students to learn about STEM opportunities.

“The event will afford students and their families an opportunity to explore science, technology, engineering, and mathematic activities and learn about career opportunities in these fields,” he said.

The event will feature 20 different activities which are designed to be fun while also teaching students about various STEM fields.

“I would like to generate more interest in STEM programs at an earlier age,” Student Retention Director Holly Williams said. “This will hopefully fuel the next generation of scientists.”

STEM Night is funded in part from a $1,000 Innovative Initiative Grant from the ACC Foundation.

There will also be door prizes and free giveaways at the event.

STEM Night will be from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Alvin Junior High School, 2300 W. South Street in Alvin.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 281-756-3553.
