MACS Club offers problem-solving fun
By Juanita Kelly-Hill
The Math and Computer Science Club at LCC teaches the possible uses of esoteric mathematics and computer technologies while facilitating a local professional and social community of like-minded STEM enthusiasts.
The goal of the club is to encourage students to have fun with math and computer science topics. Topics tend to be questions of interest related to math and computer science topics that standard classes do not have time to investigate, according to Club Adviser Dr. Jennifer Flenner.
“The MACS club is a resource for students who wish to learn more about math and computer science professions,” Flenner explained. “However, the MACS club isn't just a career club, it's also a great way for students to meet others that share their interests and socialize.”
The club meetings are held on selected Wednesday evenings from 7 to 8 p.m. in the Arts and Sciences Building in room 3312. The next meeting will be Wednesday, Oct. 26.
MACS Club President William McCormick expressed that the club is always welcoming new members, and doesn't require students to have a high level of mathematics knowledge.
He recommended the club to any students who are interested in mathematics and computer science, and said he wants to meet people who share similar interests.
“We offer value to the math and computer science department by connecting students to those who share similar interests in both topics,” McCormick said, “exposing students to new ideas and applications in mathematics, and having fun while learning more about mathematics.”
