About the Academy

The STEAM Team Summer Academy is a week-long program focused on holistic academic enrichment for students in grades 6-12. The Academy provides high quality, student-centered learning opportunities in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.  Through the Academy, students engage their creativity, enhance problem solving, and develop communication and critical thinking skills. The daily activities include designing complex chain reaction machines, programming robotic devices, exploring mathematical concepts through origami, solving mathematical visualization challenges, team building through fitness activities, and goal setting in preparation for transition to high school, college and career. In addition, High school students will explore mathematics through concepts of social justice and equity.

Camp activities will be facilitated by faculty, students and alumni from the School of Leadership and Education Sciences, the Shiley-Marcos School of Engineering, and the College of Arts and Sciences.
