We hope to re-activate the CCC Science Club as soon as possible!

If you are interested to help us do so, reach out to one of us!! You only need to have a passion for Science and a desire to promote Science at CCC. There are many fun ways to do so, as the list of our past activities will show you. Whether one of these interest you or you have an original idea, do not hesitate to contact us! Throughout the year, we will also send messages for Science related activities that you may want to participate in. Students from all departments and undeclared students are welcome!

The CCC Science Club is a student club started on campus in 2003.  The club is for anyone, in any program of study, interested in promoting the understanding of scientific issues relevant to our lives.  All students interested in having some fun promoting science within our college community and the community at large are encouraged to participate.

The CCC Science Club has been affiliated with the National Science Teacher's AssociationNSTA is the premier science educators organization dedicated to promoting excellence in science teaching and science learning for all.  In 2003, Clinton Community College gained the distinction of being the first community college in the nation to become affiliated with NSTA.
