Science and Math Institute at Bellevue College
The Bellevue College Science and Math Institute (SAMI) was created in 2007 to promote interest in science and mathematics. SAMI strives to encourage K-12 students to take an interest in studying science and math in school by providing programs and events that encourage discovery and awareness. SAMI also develops and supports on-campus educational events to retain the number of BC students seeking degrees in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields. Additionally, SAMI hosts events and programs that spark an interest in science-related topics for the general public in the surrounding communities.
