Students spend summertime in STEM program

Kingsborough Community College freshmen started a two-week summer boot camp Thursday to learn more about science, technology, engineering and math.



The STEM program will give students hands-on experience with using alternative energy, 3-D printing in manufacturing technology, and biomedical engineering.



"They spend about a week in this lab and then they spend another week in our actual college science labs working with our outstanding faculty," Kingsborough Community College President Farley Herzek says.



Kingsborough Community College and other CUNY schools received over $50 million to support their STEM education programs.
