MAYS LANDING - Atlantic Cape Community College has broken ground on their new, state of the art stem facility.
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math and it's the first new college building at Atlantic Cape's Mays Landing campus in nearly two decades.
The over 32,000–square–foot, two–story facility will feature science labs, computer labs, office space and even a partially vegetated roof.
Dr. Peter Mora, President of Atlantic Cape, said the building is an investment in the future of Atlantic and Cape May Counties, and will help students get high paying, high skill jobs in fields such as science and engineering.
Atlantic Cape says that the $16 million project will be completed in Spring 2014.
