Celebration of science, technology, engineering, and math at the Houston Museum of Natural Science

The San Jacinto College STEM Council recently held the “Partners in STEM” event at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Supporters of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education came out to learn more about how the College is developing initiatives to increase student interest and educational opportunities in STEM. The evening featured a welcome by Dan Mims, San Jacinto College Board of Trustees chair, and Dr. Ann Cartwright, department chair of physical science, with closing remarks by Dr. Richard Bailey, vice president of accreditation and special initiatives. Entertainment was provided by the North Campus music department, led by Randy Snyder.

Formed this year, the STEM Council strives to increase awareness of education and career opportunities in STEM by sponsoring activities open to the public throughout the year, working with community members to promote STEM fields to K-12 students, and forming partnerships with universities and industries for workforce training and education.
