What is the STEM EDGE mission?

The STEM Excellence in Development, Student Growth and Equity (EDGE) program at PCC was created to promote awareness and increase student achievement in STEM education. Our team is here to guide students on their journey in STEM by providing support in advising, tutoring, undergraduate research, course development and transfer advice. Students in the program will have access to state-of-the-art technology and tools to aid their education and workshop opportunities that will help them in life.

Colorado Space Grant

EXPERIENCE!

The Colorado Space Grant Consortium (COSGC) is funded by NASA and is a statewide organization involving 17 colleges, universities and institutions around Colorado. It provides Colorado students access to space through innovative courses, real world hands-on Robotics and Balloon Satellites programs, and interactive outreach programs.

Students interact with engineers and scientists from NASA and aerospace companies to develop,test, and fly new space technologies and to support our outreach and teaching programs.

For more information on COSGC, contact Joey Mathews at 719.549.3125 or Joey.Mathews@pueblocc.edu
