Classes Not To Miss
- Summer STEM Research Course at LMC. Interested in scientific research? This course will introduce students to the methodology, techniques, and approaches to conducing independent research in the biological sciences. Throughout the course, students will read primary scientific literature, design and conduct independent research projects, and present their results in professional format. This experience will help students develop technical, communication, and critical thinking skills that are crucial to their success as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) professionals. Upon successful completion of the course, students will be better prepared for their future STEM studies as well as research opportunities in academic or industry laboratories.
Register for this course happening this summer!

- Accelerated Calculus!
In order to accelerate STEM student completion of their pre-transfer math requirements, this fall LMC is offering students the option of taking both Math 50 (Calculus I) and Math 60 (Calculus II) in the same semester. Doing so gives students the opportunity to complete these courses, which serve as prerequisite courses for other STEM courses on campus in a more timely fashion so that they can move toward transfer more quickly.
These sections are being offered both in Pittsburg and Brentwood.
For Pittsburg, classes will be held:
Mon, Wed 1 - 2:50 pm and
Tues, Thurs 11 am - 2:50 pm.
All lab hours are included in this schedule.
To sign up, register for BOTH:
Math 50 section 2277 and
Math 60 section 1676
For Brentwood, classes will be held:
Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri 8:30 - 10:50 am
There is also an additional 2 lab hour by arrangement requirement.
To sign up, register for BOTH:
Math 50 section 9595 and
Math 60 section 9516.
Things To Know
- STEM Ambassadors- Be A Volunteer! STEM ambassadors mentor at Pittsburg High School STEM classes, tutoring in math, biology, physics and chemistry classes. They present STEM Student Success Panels to high school students, and explain how Los Medanos College works as a transfer institution for STEM majors. The STEM Ambassadors also perform laboratory experiments and demonstrations for students in various science classes at PHS. STEM Ambassadors choose how they would like to volunteer their time, as a tutor in a classroom, a member of the Student Success Panel, or a lab presenter in collaboration with an LMC STEM faculty member. These volunteer hours can also be used to support your application process as you prepare to transfer to a college/university in a STEM major.
