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 almost 20 years, the Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) Conference has brought 7th and 8th grade girls and their sponsors to the S&T campus to experience the world of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). This hands-on event has a way of getting students interested, encouraged and enthusiastic about their future careers. Guest speakers include successful women who share their triumphs and challenges, as well as what they have learned along the way. Past speakers have included astronauts, authors, doctors, the director of national intelligence, innovators, scientists, and many others. The conference is hands-on and includes workshops led by S&T faculty & alumni and industry experts. This is one of our most popular and well-attended campus events.
