In its continued efforts to build community, the San Diego Mesa College STEM Core program has created a student-driven virtual meeting space where participants connect on their own terms. The virtual meeting place is protected as “student-only space,” which the cohort has named “STEM Corner.” Although attendance is not required, the STEM Corner’s weekly meetups were heavily utilized by students over the course of Fall-Spring 2020-2021. Students also expressed their desire to have an asynchronous way to connect with peers unable to attend weekly STEM Corner conversations, which led to the creation of a STEM Corner podcast and forthcoming YouTube channel. Students will select discussion topics and are vetting a list of interview guests who will inform students and meet them where they are.
