In 2019, we created and hosted eleven different summer academies in Healthcare, Technology and Engineering.  Our students participated in camps that explored engineering, robotics,coding, forensic science, environmental sustainability and entrepreneurship. The camps were offered at four age levels from middle school to pre-college. Many employers in the area provided space to host the academies as well as instructors and activities.  For more information on all of our 2020 summer camps, please visit the SUMMER ACADEMIES page.
