About COA Community STEM Outreach
COA is excited to launch a Community STEM Outreach program in partnership with the NC Bionetwork. This is a joint endeavor between COA’s Mathematics and Engineering department and Science department. The program is designed to engage children and young adults in our service area through a variety of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) outreach projects such as Community Science Night and Virtual STEM Night. According to Lisa Meads, Coordinator of the outreach project at COA, “These events use interactive activities to engage children and young adults in STEM-related topics while planting the seed in STEM education and careers.”
