We do this by offering:

(1) four weeks of intensive, project-based STEM programming each summer (prior to scholars' junior and senior years in high school)
(2) workshops, seminars and field trips during each school year
(3) college advising and career exploration opportunities
(4) guidance and support developing leadership projects
