The Western PA Summer STEMM Academy is on as of Monday, June 19, 2017! Please check Daily Updates for any changes to the schedule, or for any reminders that may be needed for the days' events.
The Western Pennsylvania Summer STEMM Academy (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and Medicine) is a three-week summer program for rising high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors with an interest in STEMM pathways or a desire to learn more about them.
Students will have the opportunity to actively learn through interactions with doctors, professors, and business professionals in the STEMM-related fields through guest speakers, activities, and field explorations to universities, research labs, and STEMM-related businesses. In addition, Level II students will learn through extensive research projects in their intended STEMM career pathway and a final presentation of findings.
The goals of STEMM are to:
- Provide students with a deeper understanding of STEMM pathways and careers.
- Strengthen partnerships between businesses, medical and educational institutions and their future employees.
- Encourage and foster the students’ higher order thinking through inquiry-based learning.
