Students participating in STEM activities at Donnelly College

Summer STEM Academy

Donnelly College’s new Summer STEM Academy is designed to help students transition from high school math and science courses into college-level STEM courses. In addition to reviewing core concepts in STEM fields, students will gain valuable experience with college-level laboratory methods. The goal of this free program is for students to increase their math and science skills, but it won’t be all work. Field trips, group projects and other fun activities will help students broaden their understanding of STEM career options.

If you’re thinking of pursuing a STEM field in college, or need to improve in STEM courses, this program is for you. Incoming high school seniors, college freshmen and current college students from Donnelly or any institution, are encouraged to apply.
