Bringing the wonder of science to the community

The Natural Sciences Division of Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC) is committed to maintaining strong ties to the community through its schools, civic organizations and other non-profits.

BCTC faculty involve themselves by:

  • serving as judges at local science fairs.
  • running the Regional Science Olympiad competition.
  • providing demonstrations and hands-on activities for schools and organizations upon request. 
  • participating in campus sponsored outreach opportunities.

If you are interested in having somebody from the Natural Sciences Division meet with your school or organization, please let us know. We'd be happy to discuss with you how we may enrich your program.
