CRANFORD – Union County College is offering a free set of classes, called “Women in STEM Expo,” on careers and experiences one could have from choosing a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) major.
The College will offer this free set of classes at its Cranford campus, located at 1033 Springfield Avenue, across from the entrance to Nomahegan Park. The class will be held on Mon. Oct. 10, 2016, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The first mini event of the afternoon is “Women in Engineering.” During this half hour of training, participants will work on a 3D design and learn about 3D printing and advances in the printing field. Beginning around 2:30 p.m., the group will move onto the “Chemistry Expo” where current Union County College students will be running experiments in the lab for the attendees to observe. Advisors will be available to answer questions about being a chemistry major. The final part of the day will be run by the College’s Biology Club, beginning around 3 p.m. They will run a “Biology Expo” for the students to participate in and will also be able to answer questions about being a biology major.
This program was made possible with the support from the Union County Office on Women, Department of Human Services. The class is free, but registration is required because there are a limited number of spots available. Please RSVP to STEMDivision@ucc.edu.
