The Summer Adventure Academy program encourages middle and high school students to complete high school and further their education in a STEM-related discipline and ultimately join the technical workforce in their community by earning a STEM degree.
These week-long summer camps promote STEM career exploration by providing outside the classroom educational experiences to raise students’ aspirations. The Summer Adventure Academies engage students in real-world, hands-on camps that demonstrate the skills necessary in STEM occupations.
More than 2,000 students have participated in the program since 2010.
Local secondary school teachers who teach STEM subjects in their classrooms often co-teach the academies alongside a Ranken faculty member or industry expert trained in a correlating field. This paid opportunity informs educators about technical occupations and the educational requirements necessary to obtain rewarding STEM careers. They carry beneficial information back to their classrooms to share with their students. More than 115 secondary teachers have taken advantage of this opportunity since 2012.
