CLARKSDALE — Twenty incoming freshman that are registered for fall classes at Coahoma Community College will have the opportunity to participate in CCC’s inaugural STEM-BRIDGE Academy being held July 17-31.

Applications for participation in the academy must be received no later than July 5 at 1 p.m. and the program is FREE!

The purpose of this project is to provide a carefully constructed, comprehensive scientific experience during the summer that supports exposure to the key elements required for a thorough understanding of the chemistry, biology and math courses offered at CCC.

The eight-day summer program will teach basic concepts, introduce students to research activities, instrumentation, technical writing, and lab techniques. Students will spend one week on the Coahoma campus (July 17-22) and will also participate in a 4-day STEM trip (July 27-31) to STEM Research Laboratories in Georgia and South Carolina.

During their freshman year, the participants will also enroll in a one-hour, non-transferable credit course that will reinforce the concepts taught during the summer.

To be eligible students must be high-school graduates that are enrolled as first-time freshmen (or were dual-enrolled in 2015-16) at CCC. You must also be majoring in one of the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines.

For more information about this program, please contact Letha Richards at lrichards@coahomacc.edu.
