At SMCC, Math, Science and Engineering aren’t limited to the classroom.

Our MSE students regularly take part in events around the Phoenix area to use their newly acquired skills to compete against other students.

Twice a year, SMCC holds “Be An Engineer” Day, in which students set up shop inside and outside the Student Union, using demonstrations and contests to illustrate the fundamental principles of engineering.

Summer Bioscience Camps are held each June, to immerse area high school students in the basic biology principles and new technologies in the field of bioscience.

Our summer Math STAR camp is designed to prepare incoming students for their pre-college math placement tests.

And astronomy students periodically hold evening “stargazing” events at SMCC’s mini-observatory, located just outside the SMCC Physical Science buildings.
