Middle and High School STEM Workshops

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.
