The SBVC STEM Cart Project

The STEM Cart Project at San Bernardino Valley College was able to contextualize principles of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics with a hands on golf cart rebuild project. Students and Faculty from various departments including Mathematics, Physics, and Applied Technology were tasked with breaking down an ordinary golf cart and rebuilding it using STEM principles. Faculty were able to discuss the project in their lectures and students were able to work on and see as the cart progressed through the various stages of completion. This process gave students a unique perspective on how classroom instruction applied in the field. The STEM cart will be used to highlight the relevancy of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics to our community while also showcasing the collaboration between faculty and students at San Bernardino Valley College. This project was funded by a US Department of Education Title III Hispanic Serving Institution STEM and Articulation Grant.

ATTENTION STEM STUDENTS: 

Due to unforeseen events last semester, many of you had your final delayed and needed to keep your text book pass the due date.  Please bring back your STEM book on the first week of Spring 2016.  Failure to return your book may result in a hold on your record and delay in getting another book in Spring 2016.


COHORT INSTRUCTIONS:

If you wish to register into the accelerated math cohort classes.  A petition is required from STEM Counselor Daniele Ramsey.To apply for the petition, please sign up at www.sbvcstem.org/co-hort. Cohort registration will have an extended registration period as these courses are not open for general student registration.  Please check your email multiple times each day to receive notice of being registered and to ensure you pay all fees within a 24 hr. period after being registered.  Failure to pay fees within 24 hours of registration will result in being dropped from the course. 

If you have questions for Ms. Ramsey regarding the accelerated STEM Math Co-hort classes please contact her at dramsey@sbccd.cc.ca.us or at (909) 384-8651.

The STEM CART PROJECT

With the coming of the Fall Semester 2015, we are proud to announce the start of the STEM Cart Project.  With the collaboration between various departments and the help of our students, we will be upgrading our STEM's golf cart with green energy technology and light weight materials while improving the looks of our carts.  The project is meant to raise awareness about STEM and future technologies as well as providing our students with a hands-on learning experience.
