Maysville Community and Technical College is among a select few institutions to be selected to take part in a project to strengthen STEM education.
Project Vision is supported by the National Science Foundation. The goal of the 5-year project is to catalyze submissions of proposals from 45 two-year colleges not previously associated with Division of Undergraduate Education programs.
Russ Ward is the Interim President of MCTC. He discussed the matter during the August Morehead-Rowan County Chamber of Commerce Luncheon.
Ward says the college will be working with the National Science Foundation over the next year to develop new programs for students in STEM programs. He says this will allow for students to be even more prepared as they move on to 4-year institutions.
