STEM and Pre-Med Guided Pathways Conference

MESA and Bakersfield College Present: STEM and Pre-Med Guided Pathways Conference

About the Conference

The Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA) Program and Bakersfield College hosts an annual conference on the Panorama Campus that is geared to educate the community about Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM), and Pre-Med education.

The conference is designed to allow participants to network with professionals in STEM and Pre-Med and explore these areas of education and careers.

Participants learn about opportunities that can further their education and careers in STEM or Pre-Med via workshops, a resource fair, and keynote speakers. College advisors, financial aid counselors, four-year universities, industry leaders, and student organizations are present to answer questions participants may have about college and their discipline.

The goals of the conference are to educate and inform the community about the educational system and what STEM and Pre-Med education are like. In addition, we aim to augment student learning in all areas with a special focus in STEM and Pre-Med, improve community and industry partnerships, and further develop local talent with a special focus on minorities and underrepresented communities.
