Bryce Miyahara, STEM Learning Lab Coordinator
Phone: 805-922-6966 ext. 3547
Bryce began working at Allan Hancock College at the start of 2020. He was born and
raised in San Luis Obispo county, graduating from Arroyo Grande High School in 2014,
and enrolling at Cuesta College as a Promise Scholarship student. He temporarily moved
away from home to attend UC Davis, where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree
in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. In pursuit of his degree, he had spent much
of his study time in spaces similar to the STEM Learning Lab and the MESA Center.
While he enjoyed the years he spent in the Sacramento area, he never thought of it as "home." So he returned to the Central Coast, seeking to put his new degree to use in a STEM-based career. As the Coordinator for the STEM Learning Lab, he takes great joy in assisting the students and faculty that walk a very similar path to his own.
Chemistry and Biology are his largest academic strengths when helping students; but he's also a huge fan of video games and anime, and will gladly discuss them with you when you need a study break.
