Launching A.C.C.E.S.S. Program

SWE at Cal Poly Pomona is extremely excited for the commence of our new outreach program A.C.C.E.S.S. (Advancing Community College by Empowering STEM Students) Sevanne Luz Calle and Kristine Macalma, our Outreach Chairs, suggested that SWE became more involved in outreaching to community colleges and put this idea into action. They outreached to various community colleges and received responses from four community colleges that will be part of this program. The community colleges that will be joining us at our first A.C.C.E.S.S. event are East Los Angeles College, Pasadena College, Cypress College and Santa Ana College. This event will take place for the first time on February 21, 2014 from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm and we are expected to have 120 students attending. We couldn’t be any more excited!
The purpose of this event is to give community colleges the opportunity to explore the realms of our engineering and science labs. We want to give them the opportunity to ask questions and concerns about the transfer process and experiences to a panel of Cal Poly students. We will also be having a STEM panel with professionals who are currently working in the field to give them the exposure to networking. We want to encourage community college students to choose STEM fields along with the advantages of attending Cal Poly Pomona. We want them to learn about the exciting engineering and scientific internships and projects that current students are working on.
We are thrilled to have such amazing officers who go out of their way to bring forth new ideas and turn their visions into actions. Thank you Kristine Macalma and Savanne Calle for your hard work!!!
