Adventures in STEM Camp at Indiana University to be held in June

The IU Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs annually invites students currently in grades 5, 6, and 7 to apply for the "Adventures in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM)" Camp to be held on the IU Bloomington campus each June. The camp promotes science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education, and historically supports underserved and underrepresented students. Students selected for the program will engage in highly structured STEM-focused precollegiate curriculum. The Adventures in STEM Camp includes experiments and field experiences which encourage the development of each student's academic and communication skills. Classes are taught by IU faculty and affiliates. Students attend the camp free of charge.

At the time of application, students must be current 5th, 6th, or 7th graders who are Indiana residents attending school in the state of Indiana and must be recommended by their science and math teacher(s). It is extremely important to the students' success that they be mature, self-reliant, and able to work effectively in teams. Students should have a sincere interest in science and mathematics and at least a B average in science and a B average in math to be eligible.  Applications are normally accepted in early spring.
