Summer STEM Camp for Teens (July 31 - Aug. 2)

Indiana University Northwest invites teens from underrepresented minority groups to explore careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) at a free STEM Summer Camp from July 31 to August 2.

High school sophomores, juniors and seniors will learn how exciting a STEM career can be through hands-on activities and experiments in biology, chemistry, computer information systems, informatics, math and geology.

The camp takes place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday, July 31 through Wednesday, August 2 on the campus.  Materials and lunch are provided.

To learn more, and register,  call 219-980-6740.

The camp is made possible by an award from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The goal of the award is to significantly increase the number of historically underrepresented minorities receiving baccalaureate degrees in STEM.

Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) is leading the $4.8 million Indiana STEM Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) initiative. The alliance is comprised of six institutions across Indiana, Ball State University, Indiana University Bloomington, Indiana University Northwest, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, Indiana University South Bend, and Ivy Tech Community College, Indianapolis.

The National Science Foundation's (NSF) Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program is designed to substantially increase the quantity and quality of students, especially underrepresented students, who study STEM disciplines. LSAMP offers identified STEM majors who qualify the opportunity to receive a stipend while conducting research in their major.
