Students are finally back in school, and the Henry Cluster STEMM Foundation has been working throughout the summer on two projects.
Attend college for free
On Tuesday, Oct. 12, the Henry Cluster STEMM Foundation will hold a workshop for students to learn how to attend college for free. Check hcstemm.org, Instagram, and Facebook for final details.
Join HCSTEMM and representatives from our local community college districts to learn what degree paths and resources are available locally to high school graduates pursuing higher education. Attendees will hear short presentations and have an opportunity to ask questions about what programs and coursework are available our local community colleges, what extracurricular opportunities exist, how to enroll to get free tuition, and how to transfer credits to four-year degree programs at universities.
This event will be held outdoors in the San Carlos Library’s upper parking lot beginning at 5:30 p.m. A special thanks to David Ege, the branch manager of the San Carlos Library for hosting this event.
Fall 2021 robot season
Our neighborhood is home to several FIRST LEGO League and FIRST Tech Challenge competitive robotics teams. The FLL teams are already hard at work on the “Cargo Connect” challenge, and the FTC “Freight Frenzy” season kick off is Sept. 18. Good luck to all participants as they design and build robots to meet this year’s challenges.
If you are interested in starting an FLL Jr, FLL, or FTC team at your school or in your neighborhood, visit the FIRST website at firstinspires.org. The HCSTEMM Foundation can connect new coaches to established teams for information and advice.
