WINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College will host a Biotechnology Bootcamp Feb. 3 for prospective students interested in the college’s biotech program.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will focus on the growth and everchanging nature of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers and explore job opportunities available with eastern North Carolina’s many life sciences industries. It will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Walter & Marie Williams Building, as well as the Craig F. Goess Student Center’s Davenport Multipurpose Room.

“We presented and recruited at each Pitt County high school during the 2023 Fall Semester, and now we are giving students an opportunity to explore our campus and see what we have to offer individuals who choose to further their education at Pitt,” said Dr. Rachel M. Davis, PCC Biotechnology Pathways Equity Navigator. “The purpose of the bootcamp is to provide follow-ups for those students that expressed interest in PCC’s Biotechnology program.”

In addition to participating in hands-on STEM activities to learn more about Pitt’s biotech training, bootcamp attendees will receive a free meal and various swag materials.
