Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics (STEAM)
*** This program is offered at no cost to participants ***
ABOUT THE STEAM POSSE PROGRAM:
STEAM Posse engages, inspires, and mentors cohorts of students interested in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics. Our five-day camp is unique in that it is designed to teach your children something they are not taught in school, while also allowing them to make friends and create something truly amazing they can be proud of. Summer camp combines hands-on workshops, group activities centered on their future goals beyond high school, and exploration of the intersection of science, technology, engineering, art, math, culture, and business.
Our goal is to increase the number of underrepresented students majoring in STEAM-related fields while also preparing them for whatever comes their way in the future.
About the Camp
