STEM Academy Ceremony in February!


              The Eastvale STEM Academy Ground Breaking ceremony will be held Friday, February 3, 2017 at 10 a.m. in Eastvale. The E-STEM Academy is built on three founding principles: Access, Collaboration, and Partnership. E-STEM focuses on preparing students to be college and career ready in the STEM fields upon graduating through partnerships.

Eleanor Roosevelt High School is set to become the district’s second STEM school. The Eastvale STEM Academy building is scheduled to open in 2018. Students enrolled in the STEM program will be exposed to a learning environment which requires critical thinking, problem solving, innovation and collaboration. These skills will be integrated into the STEM curriculum of real-world science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The address to the E-STEM academy is 7447 Scholar Way, Eastvale, CA 92880.


Community Robotics Workshop At Mt. SAC

By Mike Taylor

Walnut – The Mt. San Antonio College STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Center and the college’s Robotics Team will host a Robotics Workshop for ages 8 and up on Saturday, July 30, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Science Laboratory Building, building 60, room 1506. This event is free and open to the public.

“Robots are fun, and they’re fun to build,” said Mt. SAC Physics Professor and Robotics Team advisor Daniel Anderson. “No prior experience necessary.”

Workshop participants will learn about and help Robotics Team members build robots as well as learn about a robotics competition, building components, and design.

“This workshop is designed to take the fear out of engineering and technical things,” said Anderson.

This year, Mt. SAC’s Robotics Team qualified to compete at the VEX International World Competition in Kentucky. The competition hosts teams from around the world. Mt. SAC was one of only four community colleges in the nation at the competition.

“The field of robotics is doubling every year as interest in robots grows,” said Anderson.

Minor children participating in the workshop must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Established a year ago with its first cohort group of students, the STEM Center fosters student interest in science and provides academic support, enrichment activities, teaching opportunities, and research experience.
