ACC STURM COLLABORATIVE CAMPUS VISIT for 8TH GRADE GIRLS
SATURDAY, MARCH 5, 9 am – 12:30 pm
Save the date to be a part of an AAUW Douglas County event that has been in the planning stages for a couple of years. In the past we have recognized outstanding high school girls taking STEM classes. It was felt that a new direction was needed and with the opening of the Sturm Collaborative Campus in Castle Rock and an Arapahoe Community College Campus in Parker, a new opportunity has presented itself to make 8th grade girls in Douglas County aware of the wide variety of pathways and degrees that are open to them locally to explore their career options including options in STEM fields. They could learn about college credit while in High School, scholarships, ACC resources that include career and academic advising and about seamless transfers to other universities to pursue further education.
