The goal of the summer camp scholarship project is to increase the number of historically underrepresented students who are motivated and prepared academically to pursue degrees leading to careers in STEM related field through K-12 supplemental educational programming during the summer. For 2021, STEM summer camps have been transformed by WSU faculty and staff to be delivered as virtual learning experiences. It is hoped that participation will keep students engaged in STEM and mitigate some of the effects of a disrupted 2020-21 academic year. CTN funding will provide scholarships for students who could otherwise not afford participation in a summer camp. The camps are designed to reach two age groups. Engineering Summer Academy (ESA) will focus on students ages 6-13 with offerings such as Coding Boot Camp, Lego Movie Making, and Roblox Game Design. C2P will focus on high school students and feature Amesite certificate programs. Funding from CTN will provide will provide 115 full scholarships to students who qualify.
