The STEM Summer Institute for rising 9th and 10th grade girls - and the new in 2013 STEM Summer Institute for rising 11th and 12th grade girls - have been created as a model STEM summer program for girls. Our aim is to model true integration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in a domain that is naturally appealing to girls – serving other girls in a global setting. Each year the STEM Summer Institute will tackle a different problem sponsored by the Lwala Community Alliance. In future summers, we will invite educators from other schools to visit our summer program and take home our model and even our specific curriculum to implement in their local area. This year both institutes will run June 10-21, 2013. Please use the menu to the left to access the applications and flyers.
Additional grant funding in the future will allow expansion of the STEM Summer Institute to include additional grade levels and an associated professional development workshop for teachers and administrators.
