The two-week science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) camp brought emerging high school sophomores, juniors and seniors together to learn more about the four subject areas. Teens were able to improve their skills in engineering and mathematics by being exposed to real-world application, were introduced to practicing professionals in STEM fields and learned about potential college majors and internship opportunities.
“STEM education is a major focus of our Club. Those key subjects are not only important in school but in the real world as well, and we introduce Club members to that at an early age. We are extremely grateful to NAACP and FGCU for giving our membersthe opportunity to attend the STEM camp,” said Paul Schultz, Vice President of Operations at the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County.
