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.
