Through a partnership withLockheed Martin, Capitol College established the STEM Leaders Program. This program encourages community college students to not only earn a bachelor’s degree in a STEM field, but to emerge from their education as skilled professionals and innovative leaders in those fields. STEM Leaders are connected with leaders and professionals in the STEM industries through Career Exploration Workshops and mentoring through Capitol College’s Innovation and Leadership Institute (ILI).
The STEM Leaders Program is a free, semester-long series to explore the possibilities of a career in the science, technology engineering and math (STEM) fields. Through the various workshops of this program you will connect with leaders and professionals in STEM industries, such as NASA, and get a jump start on entering the workforce.
