Enhancing the STEM pipeline

Job opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields are growing fast. Yet, the majority of U.S. students, particularly low-income and minority students lack foundational skills and knowledge in STEM.

To address these challenges, CCBC is taking a comprehensive approach to increase the enrollment, retention and graduation in STEM education. We believe that our approaches – creating a pipeline for high school students, and providing scholarships and wrap-around supports – maximize students’ potential for success.
