Investigative Summer STEM Program

The Investigative Summer STEM Program (ISSP) is designed to enhance enthusiasm and interest of high school sophomores, juniors and seniors (2024-2025 School Year) in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields, and motivate them through exploration and testing of ideas for STEM careers. The program is offered in response to a national concern about the diminishing number of young people pursuing careers in the STEM fields.
