Tarrant County College Southeast, in collaboration with the U.S. Army, will connect the community with careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) during two community days this summer.
The community will join with participants in various TCC STEM camps to explore the U.S. Army STEM Trailer and two tents set up with games. They also will hear from Army professionals on June 19 and July 17 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the lawn in front of TCC Southeast at 2100 Southeast Parkway in Arlington.
U.S. Lt. Colonel James E. Zoizack, four staff sergeants and retired TCC campus Army veterans will share their experiences and provide demonstrations. Arlington City Councilman Marvin Sutton and TCC Board Member Michael Evans are among community leaders expected to participate.
