The STEM Division at Fletcher Technical Community College created ‘Bayou STEM’ as one strategy to improve access to STEM career opportunities in the bayou region. Bayou STEM offers unique STEM education and development experiences.

We offer learning opportunities beyond the traditional classroom environment by offering in-person and virtual summer camps, K-12 teacher professional development, community STEM festivals, and much more!

Bayou STEM’s goal is to foster lifelong learning and expand access and interest in STEM fields. We expect that by participating in these formal and informal education programs, students will develop  pathways to pursue advanced topics in formal STEM academic programs.

We look forward to meeting you on Fletcher’s campuses and out in the community at our events.
