STEM - The Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics Institute

This four-summer 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.

During 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.
