Pittsfield: Open house for BCC’s STEM Starter Academy; Deadline extended to May 19


Berkshire Community College will hold an open house for the college’s newly created STEM Starter Academy for interested students from 11:15 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, May 21.

Along with the other 14 community colleges in the Commonwealth, BCC’s SSA aims to recruit, engage and retain students who are planning to enroll in science, technology, engineering or math programs (STEM).

As part of the SSA open house, which will begin in the cafeteria in the Susan B. Anthony building on BCC’s Main Campus in Pittsfield, students will participate in hands-on STEM activities with faculty members and tour the campus with upper class STEM scholars. Lunch will be provided.

Students must RSVP by Monday, May 19, by calling (413) 236-4740. Interested applicants are encouraged to attend. Parents are welcome.

The deadline to apply to BCC’s SSA is May 30. Applications are available in all Berkshire County high schools and by request.
