STEM Summer Academy

A key purpose of the STEM Summer Academy is to inspire interest from female high school students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics and to encourage them to choose STEM as their college major since females continue to be unrepresented in many STEM fields. Although many camp activities are designed to inspire interest from females, males are equally encouraged to apply and are eligible to participate in the STEM Summer Academy. July 12-16, 2021
