The STEM Academy is a place where students can explore their passions and make connections. The major elements of the program are enrollment in the weekly STEM Advisory, attending STEM Lecture Series events, participating in an internship and creating an independent project. Students in the STEM Academy will be exposed to a wide variety of new ideas and hands on projects. They will meet people who share their interests, both in their high school peer group and in the community.
