Are you headed for a career in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math?

The STEM to Stern program is part of the RISE Learning Institute at Bellevue College. STEM to Stern is a cohort program that accelerates the growth of students in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. You will learn skills and make connections that will help you succeed as a STEM student and STEM professional.

In the first year of the STEM to Stern program, you will take a two-credit course with other STEM students in the fall, winter, and spring terms. You will meet mentors from companies such as Boeing, Microsoft, Puget Sound Energy, Fred Hutch, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). STEM to Stern focuses on helping you identify and apply for experiential learning opportunities like internships and research experiences.

The second year of the program is called STEM Squared. You will take a one-credit course each quarter during fall, winter, and spring terms. These courses will help you identify and apply for internship and research opportunities, participate in project teams, and prepare to transfer to a four-year institution.
