According to a Stillman College spokesperson, the project-based STEM learning program will offer students the opportunity to receive mentorship, access to next-generation technology and hands-on training while also learning design thinking, 3D printing, augmented reality and social entrepreneurship.

The college will host two sessions for the program with the first session starting June 12 through June 22 and the second starting July 10 through July 30.

The enrichment classes will run Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Stillman's campus and will be led by more than a dozen Stillman students involved in leadership groups across campus.

Carly Erby, a senior psychology major at Stillman and camp instructor, said the program will allow students to participate in STEM-related field trips, including swimming, bowling and skating.

“The program is focused on kids who are affected by the digital divide, to not only get acquainted to technology, but to develop new skills and interests in areas such as coding and robotics,” Erby said.
