STEM Summer allows students to explore a common theme through Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science and Engineering. The morning is spent in a hands-on academic setting where students are taught by MassBay professors. In the afternoon, students work in groups to create a three-dimensional representation of what they learned in the morning. This year’s theme is the Human Body, where students will explore the body’s different systems learning elements of biology and anatomy in creative ways. Activities are designed to be fun, explorative and something students would unlikely encounter in a traditional school setting.
