Extracurricular STEM ProgramsThe Summer STEM Academy has been successful and will take place for a fourth time this summer. The addition of a second level advanced week should be popular for students who already attended the basic robotics camp and the advanced camp. There is an interest in continuing to build upon student skills and interest levels as they become middle school aged and pursue the rigorous, honors level PLTW courses at the high school.
Consideration is being given to alternative summer STEM camp options as well--programs established by outside companies that specialize in summer STEM programs and provide training to teachers. "Camp Invention" is one to consider. http://campinvention.org/2015-program/
A concerted effort is made to engage girls in STEM career fields in which women are underrepresented. Girls in grades 6-10 will participate in a #girlSTEM conference at Delaware Valley College in Doylestown in May 2015 as a way to inspire middle and high school girls to embrace careers in the STEM-related fields. The conference features interactive seminars with professional women, hands-on workshops and open forum discussions. We plan to make this an annual event for Neshaminy girls and will have two buses go to the event this year with approximately 80 girls.
