STEM - The Science,
Technology, Engineering & Mathematics Institute
program is designed to prepare pre-college students fifth through eleventh
grades to enter and succeed in science and engineering at the colleges
of their choice.
the first summer, students concentrate in learning mathematical abstraction,
logic and syntax, and geometrical conceptualization and visualization.
The second year, students learn model building of physical phenomena
and/or economic systems. The third summer, students focus in developing
mathematical and engineering intuition. Finally, the fourth summer,
students learn to simplify complexity by focusing in mathematical and
scientific analysis and synthesis. These four areas of concentration:
mathematical abstraction, logic and syntax visualization, conceptualization,
model building, intuition analysis, and synthesis constitute the fundamental
basis for outstanding success in science and engineering.
