Free immersive STEM program at Ivy Tech for students in Grades 6-8: Empowering young students with STEM and entrepreneurship skills to help build future success
Ivy Tech Community College Bloomington is partnering with Verizon and the National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship (NACCE) to offer a free, project-based STEM learning program, Verizon Innovative Learning STEM Achievers, for middle school students starting June 6 and July 5.
The Verizon Innovative Learning STEM Achievers program was launched to empower middle school students in under-resourced communities to explore STEM subjects, learn problem-solving skills, and gain exposure to careers in technology fields. Participants will receive mentorship, access to technology, and hands-on training. Students will learn design thinking, 3D printing, augmented reality, and social entrepreneurship. No prior knowledge or experience is required.
This program begins with two 3-week, in-person sessions this summer from June 6-24 and July 5-22, with a full-day workshop at Ivy Tech Bloomington in the fall and spring. Food and transportation for participants will be provided.
