The Owensboro Community and Technical College Foundation received a $25,000 grant from the Alcoa Foundation to support the implementation of the ALCOA STEAM Project, focusing on promoting education and careers in science, technology, engineering, art and math.

The program’s goal is to engage a minimum of 150 middle and high school aged students, particularly those underrepresented in STEAM, through sharing relevant information and utilizing engaging, hands-on learning activities.

OCTC faculty who teach computer and information systems, art, robotics, advanced manufacturing, and other STEAM program areas will host community outreach activities in the spring 2022 semester, followed by a STEAM academy during the summer.
