Foothill College debuts its STEM Summer Camps for currently enrolled high school juniors and seniors in June. The summer camps focus on serving women and other underrepresented students, two demographic groups whose increased participation is essential to expanding the STEM workforce.

Four sessions, each focusing on different science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) concepts, will be offered this summer:

  • Energy & Power meets Mondays–Thursdays, June 24–July 3, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.;
  • Robotics meets Mondays–Thursdays, July 8–18, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.; 
  • Math Challenge meets Mondays–Thursdays, July 8–18, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.; and 
  • Water  meets Mondays–Thursdays, July 22–Aug. 1, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Foothill's STEM Summer Camp is just one of the numerous projects that make up the Foothill College Science Learning Institute (SLI), an innovative instructional model that draws on educational research and best practices to support successful teaching and learning of STEM-related content. A key goal of Foothill’s SLI is to increase the university-transfer rates of community college students who are studying STEM subjects, and deliver better educated students into the Silicon Valley workforce. Generous community and business donations have enabled the Foothill College to offer the new STEM summer campus.

Camps will fill quickly; space is limited. There is no fee to attend camp and lunch will be provided. High school students must apply by June 1. Download the Foothill College STEM Summer Camp application at www.foothill.edu/psme/Foothill_STEM_Camp.pdf.
