STEM Academy

A free, three-week summer program for STEM students

Research

Under the mentorship of faculty, you and a group of your peers will conduct research on one of the available topics. The research will culminate with a poster presentation where you will show your work to the campus and community.

A key part of conducting research is to present your findings. At the end of STEM Academy, you and your team will build a poster board outline of your research findings. You’ll present your poster and discuss your project to campus and visitors from the community.
