B-P, Albany students visit college

Thursday, March 21, 2013 - Updated: 4:30 PM

JOHNSTOWN -- Recently, Fulton-Montgomery Community College hosted a group of eighth graders from both Broadalbin-Perth and Albany school districts.

Broadalbin-Perth STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) students visited the college for a hands-on experience in the College's Cleanroom and Advanced Manufacturing Lab. STEM classes focus on career exploration in current and emerging technologies. Students also apply college-level algebra, physics, and engineering principles to develop systematic approaches to problem-solving and critical thinking skills.

At the same time, students from University at Albany's STEP (Science and Technology Entry Program) program took a tour of F-MCC led by Admissions and Enrollment Management Assistant Dan Fogarty, met with college President Dustin Swanger, who discussed the importance of science programs, and enjoyed lunch in the college's new Union Stations dining facility.

STEP prepares historically underrepresented and economically disadvantaged elementary and secondary school students to acquire the aptitude and skills necessary to pursue post-secondary degree programs that lead to professional careers in the scientific, technical, health-related or other licensed professions.
