South Florida State College (SFSC) will host a free half-day, two-week STEM Summer Camp for high school students. The camp will take place June 18 – 29, 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at the Highlands Campus in Avon Park.  

“The purpose of the STEM Camp is to provide high school students with the opportunity to enhance their math skills, especially if they aspire to study STEM after graduation and pursue a corresponding career,” said Elizabeth Andrews, Activity Coordinator and professor of English at SFSC. “Campers will receive direct instruction and also have the unique ability to be hands on in SFSC’s new mechatronics lab which includes a variety of robotics equipment, 3D printers, and industry-specific systems. And, this is all at no cost to the campers and their families.” 

With the push for more science, technology, engineering, and math study in schools across the nation, this camp will allow campers to practice the fundamentals of math that lead to more advanced application essential to science, technology, and engineering careers. Campers will also travel to the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) in Tampa to see the practical and real-world applications of higher mathematics.  

This summer camp is free and open to all high school students who are going into their sophomore, junior or senior year, especially Hispanic and low-income applicants. All campers are responsible for providing their own transportation to and from campus. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
