Abstract at Time of Award

This proposal has three goals. The first goal is to stimulate interest in STEM degrees and careers by offering a BS degree program in Environmental Science using culturally sensitive courses, laboratory experiments and other activities. The second goal is to continue and expand innovative programs of recruitment and retention of students in STEM degree programs. These include experimential learning programs for SBC students and local high school students and outreach programs for K-12 students on the SRSR. The third goal is to expand and improve research opportunities for students in STEM related degree programs. Students in the BS degree program in Environmental Science will be required to complete a research project. The development of the Research Laboratory will greatly enhance the learning and research opportunities for students to complete research projects. SBC will apply for a loan to begin commercial analysis of environmental samples on SRSR. Ultimately, SBC hopes this laboratory can become an independent commercial laboratory for environmental analyses.
