Youth Programs

Inspiring the next generation

We know that piquing the interest of young minds is critical to success in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math). That’s why we’re excited to share our wealth of knowledge and expertise with students who attend our youth programs. Students learn through hands-on activities and experiments that open their minds to possibilities. And because most of our summer programs are residential, students get the added experience of living on campus.

Summer Camps

Starting with our diverse selection of summer camps, young men and women are able to experience campus life while learning about robotics, aerospace, engineering, electric cars, computer science and more. Over a child’s lifetime, they have the opportunity to return to S&T year after year and explore new and exciting areas of study and future career fields. We know our summer camps are integral to a large number of successful S&T students who became “hooked on S&T” through their summer camp experiences.

Expanding Your Horizons

For the past 18 years, the Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) Conference has brought 7th and 8th grade girls and their sponsors to campus to experience the world of STEM. This hands-on event, which draws 600 girls annually, has a way of getting students fired up about their future careers. Guest speakers include established and successful women who share their triumphs and tests and what they have learned on their way to success. Past speakers include an astronaut, author, doctor, director of national intelligence, innovator, researcher, and more. The conference includes workshops hosted by campus, alumni and industry experts. This diversity makes EYH one of our most popular and well-attended campus events.
