In an effort to support our high school seniors and graduating students and the demand for more workforce development in the STEM disciplines, the OJC STEM department in collaboration with several departments at OJC is excited to launch several new outreach programs. During the months of June and July OJC STEM will offer special workshops and camps for local students interested in exploring the careers pathways of their future.
