Fostering a Biomedical Regional Workforce

In an effort to support the life sciences industry and workforce in the El Paso/Juarez region, the MCA hosts a series of STEM Innovation Lab Camps throughout the year. Our STEM Innovation Lab Camps focus on the introduction of different life sciences objectives and careers to students. The STEM lab includes topics like, but is not limited to, chemistry, biology, physics, environmental science, and engineering as well as career exploration, which is primarily based off of the Workforce Solutions Borderplex regional statistics about our healthcare and biomedical industry.

We invite the region’s youth to take part in the MCA STEM Innovation Lab Camp. Our camps are filled with hands-on activities that present students to various STEM concepts.

Students will also be introduced to the MCA Foundation and the many components of the Cardwell collaborative including:

  • Innovation, Startups and Tech Entrepreneurship
  • Clinical Trials
  • Research in the region
  • Career and Internship Opportunities for the Future
