STEM Exploration Camp

Do you like Math or Science? Then this is the camp for you. Our emphasis on hands-on-learning provides a unique opportunity to answer the questions: “Is this field right for me?” “Which path do I want to take?” and “Where will it take me?”

Explore different engineering and science degrees during this 4-day camp. Each day students will get a mini presentation on two different STEM fields with hands on activities. Each session is presented by prestigious faculty whose expertise gives campers a glimpse into STEM careers and gets them excited about their education.

On Thursday afternoon parents join us on campus to learn more about what their campers experienced and an optional campus tour.
