VANCOUVER, Wash.—Clark College is returning to the Clark County Fair this summer from August 5-14 as part of this year’s fair theme of “Science Fun.” Clark College was invited to participate in this year’s theme to highlight what the college is doing in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) prior to the opening of the new STEM building on campus this fall.
“This a great venue to share what is happening in STEM at Clark. STEM is a part of many of our programs, including many that people don’t normally think of, such as automotive,” said Erin Harwood, Clark College STEM Coordinator. “The field of STEM continues to grow, and we are excited to share some of the fun things students learn in our programs with the community, and inspire others to get interested in the field.”
As part of the college’s presence at the fair, faculty and staff will lead hands-on demonstrations of various STEM activities in which children and fairgoers can participate. Representatives from the college’s Automotive, Computer Science, Biology, and other academic programs are scheduled to attend along with student clubs like the Aerospace Club which just successfully launched a rocket and the N.E.R.D. (Not Even Remotely Dorky) Girls, a student group focused on getting younger students involved in engineering.
The college also will have staff available during the fair to answer questions about available programs, GED courses, Running Start, financial aid, and more. Staff also will be available to assist current students with registering for fall classes, looking up records, and other student support needs.
For those interested in attending Clark, the $25.00 application fee will be waived for the first 50 applicants each day who apply at the fair. Current students and alumni and students will be able to stop by the booth for special giveaways and drawings for prizes.
