What is STEM?

Daytona State College’s STEM Community Scholars Program aims to increase the number of students receiving degrees in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) disciplines.  This program is supported by the National Science Foundation.  The sole purpose of the STEM Community Scholars program is to ensure that your success meets or exceeds your potential.

The 2nd annual STEM Expo drew 500 middle and high school students to Daytona State's News-Journal Center for a wild day of science experiments and eye-opening talks by STEM professionals - from a bowling ball designer to a mathematician/artist. {February 2014}
