Prior STEM Time Events



On Tuesday, November 18, 2008 MCC STEM students toured the Nuclear Reactor facilities at the Radiation Lab at UMass Lowell.

On Thursday, September 25, 2008, Dr. Pablo Suarez of the Red Cross Climate Centre joined us for a presentation and discussion.

The Climate Centre supports National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies to eventually reduce the loss of life and the damage done to the livelihoods of people affected by the impacts of climate change and extreme weather events. The Climate Centre is based in the Netherlands but serves the whole Red Cross / Red Crescent Movement, in particular in developing countries. There is a close co-operation with the secretariat of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in Geneva.
