Olympic College recently received a grant from Washington STEM, a statewide nonprofit dedicated to improving education in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Historically, Washington STEM grants have focused on K-12 students. For the first time ever, the Olympic College grant will extend benefits to community college students, encouraging them to transfer into STEM fields at a university level. Olympic College is the first community college to receive the grant’s Portfolio Award, which is a multi-year project that develops or expands STEM education innovations.
