Offered as a 3 day summer enrichment program, the camp is open to all local high school students. Each day the students will embark on a journey to explore and discover the world of STEM! Workshop materials and a daily lunch are provided. The fee for the camp is $40. Once the student has completed the camp, the students and their family members will be invited to attend a recognition and awards dinner on Friday evening.MORE INFORMATION-STEM summer camp brochure
