STEM Week of Discovery
This four-day program will introduce interested graduating high school students to a variety of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) majors, as
well as provide hands-on activities related to these majors. Our main goal is to give
students and introduction to the world of STEM while also making them aware of the
services that can help them be successful college students. An introduction to STEM
success strategies and student support services aid in a smooth transition to a four
year university. This four-day interactive experience will help to build a strong
network of peers, faculty, and staff that will connect students with academic resources
and encouragement needed throughout their education at Allan Hancock College and beyond!
Students who participate and complete the four-day program will receive a $200 book
voucher to be used at the Allan Hancock College Bookstore.

Graduating high school with honors and realizing I did not have the monetary means to go off to a university like I had always dreamed about felt like a setback. Being at a community college, for my first semester, felt like a detriment to my education. Despite this I began to reach out to other students and was referred by a student to a program called MESA. MESA has shaped my educational career. MESA has provided me with opportunities I would have otherwise missed on my own, an opportunity to work with other like-minded majors who have since become like family. With this kind of strong foundation I have been able to excel in my science, mathematics, and engineering courses.
