2021 Virtual Summer Program

July 19-30, 2021 | Monday-Friday | 10:00am-1:00pm


DePaul University College of Education’s inSTEM program was designed to serve female students who are in underserved or underrepresented STEM populations. The program is an engaging and rigorous two-week STEM summer program for rising 6th, 7th and 8th grade middle-school female students, particularly those in low-social economic Chicago-land areas. The program focuses on exposing middle school girls to hands-on experiences in science, technology, engineering, and math while developing their leadership and communications skills. The academic experience will directly address the following three priorities: Engage students in innovative, hands-on STEM activities; provide challenges in the form of Project-based tasks; and foster creative-thinking, problem-solving skills, and mathematical modeling.

Due to high enrollment interest, participants must commit to the full two-week summer program.

Session 1 | 10 am - 11:30 am CDT

During the first session grade level projects will be explored:

6th grade - Solar Car Building
7th grade - Robotics
8th grade - Coding

Session 2 | 11:45 am - 1:00 pm CDT

Monday - Thursday - Flagway
Fridays - SGH Engineering and Fun Science

Location

Google Classroom and Zoom Virtual platform (a laptop, iPad, tablet, or PC and internet access are needed to participant in the program)

Materials

While enrollment for inSTEM Summer Program continues to be offered at no cost, this year, due to our virtual platform, there is a small materials cost for the 6th grade program. In addition, our new edition of Fun Science, Flagway and SGH will require some materials that can be obtained at a relatively low cost. All materials and supplies can be located at a local grocery or dollar store. **For rising 6th-grade parents/families, the solar car kit can be ordered through Home Science Tools Website.
