Exploring Science Technology & Engineering Education Majors (ESTEEM)
July 10 - July 22, 2016
Grades 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12
The ESTEEM program will provide hands-on laboratory experiences in a university setting to engage students and increase their interest in the science, technology, math and engineering fields. Students will have access to the same state-of-the-art facilities and equipment UW Oshkosh students and faculty use.
The following summer courses will be offered in the 2016 ESTEEM Program: Introduction to Engineering, Microbiology, CSI: Chemistry, Renewable Energy, Cell Biology, Multicultural Awareness, Mathematics, Grammar/Writing and Speech Communication. Workshops in financial aid and admissions college preparatory and exploring career options will be offered this summer.
ESTEEM students also participate in recreational activities such as bowling, roller-skating, basketball, swimming, volleyball and team leadership building.
In collaboration with the UW Oshkosh Science Outreach Office, the 2016 summer programs participants are invited back for a spring campus visit in 2017 to further support and encourage students to pursue a post-secondary education.
