Coming Summer 2019: The JROTC STEM Leadership Academy is a week-long residential academy for Mobile County JROTC Cadets. The goal of the Academy is to groom Cadets into future contributors to our local STEM workforce by providing a first-hand look at STEM in action as Cadets work alongside local scientists and engineers to design innovate solutions to local problems. Cadets conduct experiments in university labs, construct and build hands-on engineering projects, and experience a variety of local industries via interactive tours and mentoring.
