High school students currently in grade 10 or 11 are invited to apply for Penn State Harrisburg’s School of Science, Engineering, and Technology free two-week STEM Summer Enrichment Program (STEM-SEP). The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 22. The program, which takes place June 10 to 21 on campus, will introduce high school students to STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines and careers through hands-on activities in areas including mathematics, computer science, chemistry, biology, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and physics.
Attendees will participate in field trips; tours of Penn State Harrisburg labs and facilities; demonstrations; hands-on experimentation; and faculty-led training on scientific oral presentations.
The event will also feature workshop sessions conducted by discipline-specific instructors with emphasis on critical thinking and problem-solving skill.
At the completion of the program, participants will receive a certificate of accomplishment and be invited to attend the School of Science, Engineering, and Technology Capstone Design Conference which is held in May of each year.
STEM-SEP is supported by a grant from ArcelorMittal, the world's leading integrated steel and mining company.
