    Discover STEM is a week-long, summer day program for rising 11th and 12th graders at the College of Science & Engineering at the University of Minneapolis. Due to limited space, admission to Discover STEM is competitive.

    During our interactive summer programs, you will network with peers while learning about current topics in research and exploring academic programs and career pathways through presentations, laboratory tours, science experiments, technology demonstrations, and Q&A sessions. Presenters may include College of Science and Engineering (CSE) faculty and graduate researchers, recent alumni in industry, and undergraduate students. Each session will have a unique schedule representing the variety of STEM pathways available through the College of Science and Engineering.

    We are committed to providing a safe and engaging environment for our community, so we are offering both in-person and virtual sessions this summer. Our in-person sessions will follow the health and safety recommendations of industry authorities (e.g. American Camp Association, Minnesota Department of Health, Center for Disease Control), and our virtual session will be highly interactive. Additional information will be available to admitted students in May.

    In-person (University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus): August 1-5 or August 8-12 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. daily Virtual (Zoom): July 26-28 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. daily
