STEM Week of Discovery

This four-day program will introduce interested graduating high school students to a variety of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) majors, as well as provide hands-on activities related to these majors. Our main goal is to give students an introduction to the world of STEM while also making them aware of the services that can help them be successful college students. An introduction to STEM success strategies and student support services aid in a smooth transition to a four year university. This four-day interactive experience will help to build a strong network of peers, faculty, and staff that will connect students with academic resources and encouragement needed throughout their education at Allan Hancock College and beyond!


Students who participate and complete the four-day program will receive a $200 book voucher to be used at the Allan Hancock College Bookstore.

ESL Spotlight

Alma Garcia

Alma Garcia
Structural Engineer

"I came from Mexico at age17, which meant I not only had to learn English at a High School level, but had to prepare for college-level courses. During my first semesters at AHC I enrolled in ESL, and made extensive use of their writing lab, which I believe was critical in my transition to transfer level classes. Engineering is a difficult major on its own, but learning all those concepts and terminology while just getting out of ESL classes was a challenge. AHC professors, counselors and programs were key to my success."
