This project uses a summer camp to expose middle school students to different career pathways and careers in STEM.

Project

This project centers on the creation of a summer camp for students in middle school and high school. The camp culminates in a robotics competition where students showcase the skills they learned. By creating a more engaging method for learning STEM skills and leveraging a community college for the camp’s location, more students will be exposed to STEM education and alternative training paths, strengthening the manufacturing workforce pipeline.

Objective
