Summer 2009 STEM Discovery Program for high school students

The Summer 2009 STEM Discovery Program is a summer initiative of Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, Massachusetts. The program offers a 3-week course of study in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics to high school students who will be Sophomores, Juniors, or Seniors in Fall 2009.

The STEM Discovery Program was developed to inspire students' interest in math and science subjects, introduce students to some of the fields of engineering technology, give students some of the tools and knowledge necessary to excel academically in science and math, and expose students to the professional opportunities that can be pursued by studying STEM subjects. Also, students will participate in local field trips as part of the program.

Students attending the STEM Discovery Program will study seven subjects, intended to introduce subject matter in a wide sampling of engineering technology fields. These classes include Bioinformatics, Biomedical, Civil, Computer Science, Electrical, Mechanical, and Nanotechnology. The material taught in this program will consist of content that is at the introductory-college level, and will be a sampling of what is normally taught to a Wentworth freshman student.

For the Summer of 2009, Wentworth is offering two sessions of the STEM Discovery Program.

Classes will be held Monday through Friday from 9:15AM to 3:40 PM at Wentworth Institute of Technology, 550 Huntington Ave, Boston, MA 02115.

Session One : June 22-July 17 (No classes June 29 - July 3)

Session Two : July 20- August 7

At the conclusion of each session this summer, there will be a dinner banquet for students and their families. The cost of attending the STEM Discovery Program is $1000 per student which includes all classroom, study, and laboratory materials, banquet, field trips and also lunch will be provided to students every day. Please note that this is a non-residential program; neither on-campus housing nor daily transportation can be provided. For more information, or to apply, please visit our website
