Mobile learning lab attracts students at BCCC Nearly 300 students and other campus visitors got a look into the future of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, careers recently on the Beaufort County Community College campus. STEM careers were on display in a 40-foot mobile lab, dubbed the STEM Bus that appeared on BCCC campus in conjunction with the annual Job and Allied Health Career Fair held Feb. 26. The STEM Bus is part of an outreach program sponsored by the state’s community colleges and the N.C. Bionetwork to generate interest in STEM education and careers by giving visitors of all ages a hands-on look into science, technology, engineering and mathematics-based programs. It contains equipment – including computer tables, a touch-screen television and a solar panel read-out - that highlights STEM careers available across North Carolina. Pictured above left to right, BCCC students Ashley Holliday of Williamston and Hector Rosado of Chocowinity manipulate a Chaos Tower under the supervision of Mobile Lab Coordinator James Sanders. The device is intended to teach some of the principles of mechanical engineering design to STEM bus visitors.
