Debating joining S.T.E.M program

  1. May 24, 2013 #1
    I'm going to be a sophomore in high school. Next summer I'm thinking about joining a S.T.E.M program it's 1,500 dollars. I don't know what to do. I could qualify for financal aid and/or a scholarship. I don't feel like a strong enough in those subjects.

    $1500 is pretty steep. Is this program offered by a school, or a private organization? Can you give us a bit more information about it?

    If you feel you aren't strong enough but you have an interest in a STEM career, then I bet you're exactly the kind of student who should take an enrichment class.

    The program is offered by a college in my area. I don't think I'm strong enough in math, but I look forward to a job in the S.T.E.M subjects. At the college I have to stay the whole summer with other teenagers. We do hands on work. We have to go to 7 classes a day. Robotics is one I know for sure.

    Do you have a program outline you can link/post?
