Middle and High School STEM Workshops

With support from many directorates and academic departments, the Center for Leadership and Diversity in STEM (CLDSTEM) organizes and runs the West Point middle school and high school STEM workshops. Each summer, middle and high school students from across the United States are invited to come to West Point for a week-long hands-on STEM workshop. The overarching goal is to increase interest in STEM through inquiry-based projects; develop and reinforce student science, math and problem-solving skills that are prerequisites to success in high school and college; and motivate students from under-resourced, geographical locations to aspire to pursue STEM courses in high school and envision themselves in STEM careers.


This unique program offers students currently in 6th and 7th grade (Middle School) and 8th and 9th grade (High School) the opportunity to participate in hands-on science, technology, engineering and mathematics activities taught by Academy faculty and cadet mentors.  Students must be citizens of the United States, demonstrate strong academic performance, and demonstrate a strong interest in pursuing college.

We are excited to announce that we are bringing the Summer STEM Workshops back to West Point!

Middle School dates: 3-7 June 2024

High School dates: 10-14 June 2024 

You can access the application at http://tinyurl.com/545esc9a and it is open now through 23 February.

Thank you for your interest in the program.


CLDSTEM has received generous donations which allow us to cover tuition for all students selected to participate in the 2024 workshop. Housing, meals, and all activities will be provided by the scholarship; however, travel for students to and from West Point is not included and must be provided by the family.

Meals and Housing

Breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner are provided at no cost for all participants. All students will stay in the barracks at West Point under the supervision of cadet mentors and faculty members.


CLDSTEM will coordinate for a West Point team to pick-up and drop off unaccompanied students flying into Newark, New Jersey. All other participants are responsible for arranging transportation to and from the West Point.
