Lego Robotics Lab at the Cherokee County Campus
The Lego Robotics program
is a nationally known program offered in public schools
as a way to encourage students to expand their Science,
Technology and Math (STEM) interest and skills. SCC has
received generous grants from Timken and Duke Energy, as
well as from the SCC Foundation to fund a Mechatronics /
Lego Robotics Lab at the Cherokee County Campus and
students will be enrolling this fall.
The lab, which is unique
to the Cherokee County Campus within our College
infrastructure, will offer on-campus facilities to
support the Lego Robotics program which is currently
operating at area high-schools via a portable trailer
An upcoming Lego Robotics
competition will be an exciting demonstration of the
skills and hand-on experience the students have received
since the program's inception last year. For more
details about the April 28th event, please
competition planned here.

SCC recently received
notification that our College received a
letter of approval of our 5th Year
Interim Report for Accreditation from SACS/COC (Southern
Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on
Colleges) submitted this year. Thank you to all who
provided information and participated in compiling the
data submitted for this very important accreditation
process. Maintaining SCC's accreditation is integral to
our success and the success of our students; it is a
critical component of the process that allows the
credits students earn here to transfer to other
universities and colleges. Preparation is now underway
for the 10 year Report.
