Jackson State University (JSU) College of Science, Technology and Engineering is back to host their fifth annual Girls STEM Academy Summer Program! Val DiGiorgio, STEM Advocate, shares the details:
The JSU Girls STEM Academy Summer Program is an opportunity available to high school girls in grades 9-12 who have maintained a 2.5-3.0 GPA throughout their most recent school year. Of course, the girls must also be interested in STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). The summer program, which will go on from July 6th to the 29th, will feature exciting and engaging activities and learning opportunities for the students. This includes, but certainly is not limited to, a short course on robotics, programming and automated vehicles. Founder of the program, Dr. Martha N. Tchounwou has prepared this program as a way to offer African American girls more opportunities in STEM fields. The objective of this program is not only to show students how fun STEM can be, but to motivate, empower and inspire these young girls to embrace STEM in their college studies and career.
