Welcome to the STEM Learning Center

The STEM Learning Center (SLC) of the Learning Commons (LC) is a central hub for students interested in pursuing or majoring in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) at Queens College. The SLC offers collaborative services to support students holistically, utilizing a full array of available technologies and resources. Students have access to STEM-specific orientations, tutoring, workshops, discussion groups, and specialists who help get them connected to resources on campus and elsewhere. Services are free for any Queens College student.

What is STEM?

Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) is an umbrella term used to group together the distinct but related technical disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The term is typically used in the context of education policy or curriculum choices in schools.

As society innovates and technology advances, the need for professionals who understand how these technologies work and who can propose practical solutions continues to grow. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) calls STEM careers “tomorrow’s jobs,” emphasizing the importance of these unique industries.
Today, STEM jobs are in high demand, and many are projected to stay in demand for several years. At the same time, STEM professionals are in short supply, which is why so many colleges — as well as the U.S. government — are imploring students to study STEM.
