Monday, Nov. 4, 35 students from Palomar’s Puente and Umoja programs attended a STEM Information session, along with Karmi Minor-Flores (UMOJA Counselor) and Michael Lundell (English Professor for Puente). This event was hosted by faculty and staff from both Palomar College and CSUSM, with support by the Title V/STEM grant. This collaboration continues to grow, and participants look forward to more joint work to help students be better prepared to succeed.
The day’s activities included the students having pizza, receiving swag (staplers and pencils provided by Student Equity), and listening to presentations by:
- Dr. Richard Armenta, Assistant Professor in Kinesiology with a focus on Health Science and Public Health.
- Joshua Love, Math Center Tutor and Palomar Math Club President.
- Roberto Leon-Baxin, former Palomar College STEM Center tutor and SI leader, now majoring in Biochemistry at CSUSM and President of the student chapter of the American Chemical Society at CSUSM.
The students then toured the Math Center and the STEM Center, and finished up with a drone demonstration by Mark Bealo.
