Have you started to make your summer plans for STEM?
According to Teen Life, “Going on a summer program is a great way to experiment with future college majors or career paths.”
Here are two sources that list amazing STEM experiences for the upcoming summer that students might want to investigate over winter break.
These lists cover a range of summer programs at colleges and in the technology and engineering industries. They are from all around the United States and do include several from the St. Louis area. Some of these are expensive, others are no cost, and many have need-based scholarships available.
Information on specific summer programs will be included in future STEM Blasts and are available on the SJA website here.
