Lake Land To Hold STEM Open House

Lake Land College will be holding a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) exploration Day through its math and science division. The event will allow high school juniors and seniors to learn more about Lake Land’s math and science academic programs as well as career opportunities in STEM fields.  


The STEM Exploration Day will begin in Lake Land’s Foundation and Alumni Center, where attendees will be separated into five groups.  Current students at Lake Land will serve as group leaders to guide the groups through campus and provide a student perspective.  Each group will attend five sessions to tour Lake Land’s labs, talk to faculty, and participate in hands-on demonstrations related to physics, chemistry, biology, math, and geographic information systems (GIS). 


All attendees will experience real-world and workplace applications associated with fast-growing occupations in STEM fields. Division Chair of Math and Science instructor Mike Rudibaugh says that they encourage all students interested in math or science to attend the open house.  The event will conclude with a faculty Q/A panel and a small group discussion for students to ask questions.  Lunch will also be provided during this segment. 


Parents or guardians of high school students, as well as anyone interested in pursuing a math or science degree, are welcome to attend. Registration is open now and you can sign up at lakelandcollege.edu/visit.  TO learn more contact Laurie Rincker, at 217-234-5237.
