THE STEMCenter at Contra Costa College was created to encourage the study of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) and to support students pursuing their education in STEM. The STEMCenter offers educational services and opportunities for students from preschool through college transfer. We offer resources to support students exploring or majoring in STEM that are housed both on campus and in our local community.
