    Young Scholars is an invitation-only science day-camp for rising 5th-8th grade students. Students who are invited to attend camp will be picked up by bus at their local elementary school and transported to one of the four colleges in the Rome area. During the four day camp, they will take part in numerous hands-on science activities, many focusing on the students' science standard for the upcoming year and/or STEM. Most of the camps also include a field trip experience. Students receive breakfast, lunch and a snack at camp each day. 

    Students are selected by their teachers at their school. The minimum requirement to attend camp is all A's and B's with no discipline issues and an interest in STEM.

What is STEM?

STEM is an acronym that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. STEM is an approach to education that expands current teaching models for science and mathematics by incorporating technology and engineering concepts into standardized instruction. STEM programs are intended to transform a typical classroom into one that is driven by problem-solving, discovery, and investigative learning. The demand for jobs that require STEM skills continues to grow and America needs a world-class STEM workforce to address the challenges of the 21st century. STEM literacy is imperative for today's students to become the strong, innovative workforce of tomorrow.
