Pioneer Career Center STEM+ Program

The STEM+ program is a dual enrollment program geared towards grades 10-12 high school students who are interested in starting early to pursue a career in criminal justice, cybersecurity, biomanufacturing, or robotics.  This will be a dual enrollment program, located at the Pioneer Career Center starting in Spring 2018.

Courses are offered in two blocks in the afternoons from 11:45am-2:45pm

Each of these curricula  were designed with objectives to allow the student to either pursue an entry level (technician level) position in the field upon completion or continue on to complete an Associates degree in the field of study or  transfer the credits to complete a Bachelors degree. 

The fields were selected based on the high demand for jobs in the local or regional area.  In some cases, internships are available so students can complete the program with both knowledge and experience in the field.
