Description: The STEM Exploring Engineering Academy is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for 9th-12th graders to live on the Georgia Tech campus and get behind the scenes access to more than 30 Atlanta-area companies.

This Academy covers a variety of STEM topics with a strong emphasis on Engineering by giving students exciting and fun hands-on experiences! Learn how different STEM concepts impact you every day, then experience these principles for yourselves as you build robots, explore different headquarters, and fly through roller coasters.

Additionally, participants get a taste of college life at one of the top engineering and technology schools in the country. During the week at the academy, participants will stay in the dorms at the Georgia Institute of Technology. They will meet students who can give them advice on preparing for college and can learn first-hand what it takes to succeed at one of the nation’s most respected universities.
