Special Welcome from President Annunziata

Welcome to Isothermal Community College’s Science & Technology Expo!

We at the College are passionate about providing this event each year. It is a wonderful opportunity to welcome you to the College as we discover the fun and excitement that exists in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

For more than 10 years, the College has hosted middle school students from Rutherford and Polk counties on our campus for a day of hands-on activities and interactive presentations.

This year’s Expo, Full STEAM Ahead, focuses on the intersection of STEM and the Arts is occurring in conjunction with the 2023 NC Science Festival. Our faculty, staff, and volunteers look forward to welcoming you to the College on Friday, March 31, 2023, as you explore the many programs available at ICC. We are excited to welcome back German/American science communicator, stage actor, and comedian Dr. Kaboom for this year’s event as he educates and entertains through interactive science exploration and comedy.  You will also engage with area business, industry, and agency representatives through career exhibits and learn about the College and special programs like Career and College Promise (CCP) that will allow you to take college courses when you get to high school.

I hope you enjoy the 2023 Science and Technology Expo as much as we enjoyed putting it together!
