Stem Summer Institute
Stem Summer Institute at Pace University
The free STEM Summer Institute will be run online for 2021. This is the ninth anniversary of the STEM Institute. Over the years, the experience has evolved from Lego programming to web and mobile app development. This year’s theme is data science and analytics. So far, more than 400 high school students have participated. Are you next?
No experience? No worries - we start with the basics and walk you through what you need to know. All you need is curiosity and a desire to learn. And did we mention that it’s free?
This year’s online program runs from Wednesday, July 7th to Friday, July 16th.
Please apply by Tuesday, June 8th at 11:59pm. Ready to go? Register for STEM Summer Institute now.

How does attending online work?
We’ve been honing our online teaching skills for a loooong time, so expect a dynamic and engaging experience. However, you do need to have your own computer and a stable internet connection so you can attend and participate fully.
Each day, class and activities will be scheduled to run live for 3-4 hours. You’ll have plenty of time for breaks and to work with your team on projects. Each team is supported by a Pace student mentor.
The projects you work on will be brand new additions to your tech portfolio, so when you apply to college (might we suggest Pace’s Seidenberg School?) you’ll have some awesome stuff to show off.
Can I do other online tech camps at Seidenberg?
Yes, we encourage it! The Seidenberg Summer Scholars game programming camp is currently open for registration. Expand your portfolio even more and earn college credits to kickstart your bachelor’s degree at Pace.

About the STEM Summer Institute
The STEM Summer Institute is a two-week program for high school students which is sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) through the STEM+Computing grant: Integrating Computational Science with Environmental Sciences Associated with Habitat Restoration and Education in New York Harbor. This grant involves the Billion Oyster Project (BOP) as a partner.
The Billion Oyster Project (BOP) is an initiative aimed at restoring one billion oysters to New York Harbor, reestablishing New York as the oyster capital of the world. It seeks to foster awareness and understanding of environmental issues surrounding New York Harbor by engaging with New Yorkers of all walks of life - from researchers, students to ordinary citizens. So far, more than 8000 middle and high school students have participated in the initiative. By 2035, one billion live oysters will be present around 100 acres of reefs in New York Harbor.
