Inspired by the PRODiG grant awarded to Hudson Valley Community College, a series of free online STEM workshops was held over the summer of 2020. Details for summer 2021 TBA.

The STEM Outreach Workshop Initiative (SOWI), created by the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, is aimed at attracting participants from under-served minority populations that might not otherwise be able to access STEM programming.

The SOWI Workshops include program languages for games, robotics and business environments. There will also be opportunities to learn about other programs at Hudson Valley Community College to continue skill development in STEM. Participants in middle school, high school and adult caregivers are invited to join in the fun! A device with internet access is required.
