Community college students have the opportunity to present their science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) projects and ideas through a national innovation competition starting in March.
The contest, called the Community College Innovation Challenge (CCIC), is an initiative of the National Science Foundation (NSF), in partnership with the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC). It started in 2015 and was held until 2018. It wasn’t held in 2019 but has been relaunched this year.
“The CCIC is made possible through a strong and ongoing partnership between the National Science Foundation and the American Association of Community Colleges to advance the nation’s community colleges and community college students in STEM innovation and impact,” said Ellen Hause, program director for academic and student affairs at AACC.
