Broward College Supporting Participation and Readiness of Kids in STEM (SPARKS)
Broward College was awarded a $14,150 grant by the Bosch Community Fund for its Supporting Participation and Readiness of Kids in STEM (SPARKS) program, which uses informal learning activities to increase interest in STEM careers among low-income and minority elementary school students. Thanks to the grant, the institution purchased a geodesic dome for interactive learning. The dome was built by Broward College students and faculty, and hosted more than a dozen fifth graders from Broward Estates Elementary in the Science for Kids program. The students spent time in and around the dome working on math and sciences exercises. In April, another two dozen eight graders will visit from Crystal Lake Community Middle School in Pompano Beach, FL.

Broward College was recognized today in Washington, D.C. as a Finalist with Distinction for the 2017 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence, the nation’s preeminent recognition of high achievement and performance in America’s community colleges. The institution was selected from 1,000 public community colleges nationwide. The $1 million Aspen Prize awards institutions for their outstanding outcomes in four areas: student learning; certificate and degree completion; employment and earnings; and high levels of access and success for minority and low-income students.
