Wondering what to do with your high school student this summer? Why not try the Atlanta Area Council’s Exploring STEM Academy.
Our annual STEM Academy is held at one of the nation’s premier educational institutions, Georgia Tech! During the first week in June students will lead a very collegiate lifestyle while learning all things STEM. Our residential camp is open to young women and men interested in a future career in STEM with an emphasis on Engineering.
Our mission is to have high school students leave our academy with a deeper understanding of what STEM professionals do every day and how they change and build the world we live in. This is a unique and great way to get your high school student motivated about their future career. Space is limited so please follow the link to register.
