STEM Student Center


Welcome to Galveston College's STEM Student Center!

The STEM Student Center is a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant founded project that is open to all students in one of the science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) specified fields. 

The mission of the STEM Student Center at Galveston College is to support STEM students by providing engaging opportunities that will enrich the experience of being in a STEM program.
