KANNAPOLIS — On Friday, local high school students got a peek at the wonderful world of STEM.

Rowan-Cabarrus Community College opened its campus at the North Carolina Research Center for students to play, explore and learn.

The campus was also open to the community Thursday evening. This is the seventh year the college has hosted its STEM Open House as part of the N.C. Science Festival.

Science, technology, engineering and math are important focused for Rowan-Cabarrus, and the college has committed to play a large role in the N.C. Science Festival. Friday’s activities focused on engaging the younger generation in science.

In addition to learning about programs and education opportunities, students could view strawberry DNA, make ice cream using dry ice, experience virtual welding and study how germs pass from person to person.
