Pre-college summer programs and camps are offered throughout the country, often through Universities to provide high school students with experiences in science, mathematics, technology, engineering, or healthcare. In addition to the list below, be sure to check your local university to see what programs they may have planned for the summer.

Students and parents should find out many details about a camp before deciding to attend.  Factors such as the size of the camp, number of weeks, amount of hands-on activities, housing, student/teacher ratio, available credit, and of course costs should enter into your decision.

The following is a sampling of the hundreds of available programs.  Be sure to check if a university or community college near you also offers summer experiences in STEM. If you know of a program not listed, please let us know!
