Members of the Civic Club of Oakland recently toured Garrett College's Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) building on the McHenry campus.
Mike Logsdon, STEM coordinator at GC, provided the group with a guided tour of the new facility and a comprehensive overview of the STEM project.
Fred Stemple, GC's coordinator of distance learning, gave an in-depth demonstration of the popular Anatomage 3D virtual dissection table, illustrating the many unique benefits and features it provides, including enhancing student learning in the classroom.
The group was extremely impressed with the new facility, and the opportunities the STEM building provides.
"Group members were very impressed that our 'little college in the mountains' has teaching equipment that even John Hopkins University in Baltimore does not have," stated Jean Tumbarello, president of the Civic Club of Oakland. "After the tour, the group marveled at the learning opportunities available to students young and old."
