The Rome Air Force Research Laboratory Information Directorate, in partnership with the Griffiss Institute, is once again offering STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) Summer Camp programs for local students, in grades 5-12.
The programs provide opportunities for students to further their education beyond the classroom, including learning skills that can be directly applied to STEM careers and education, the Griffiss Institute said.
The first camp will begin July 8. Online registration for the camps will remain open until all are filled. The camps are $100 per student, with scholarships available.
