More about the Program
Students will engage in daily hands-on activities in which they “search for” and learn about Black people in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). The hands-on activities will include:
- An escape room
- Chemistry and personal care products
- 3D printing
- Coding fundamentals
Each weeklong session will culminate in skits created and presented by the students. The skits will showcase the students’ creativity and what they learned during the action-packed week.
