The program at Strong TIES STEM Programs has been developed with the goal of engaging elementary, middle, and high school students in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Partnering with some of the world’s leading STEM organizations, the camp broadens a student’s exposure to STEM with a wide variety of new, innovative topics not seen in traditional school education. The fun and intimate, hands-on activities of the courses strive to excite and inspire campers about STEM, creating enthusiasm that will hopefully spill over to their schoolwork and school choices in future years.

MISSION. Strong TIES STEM Programs mission is to introduce, engage, and broaden participation of elementary, middle, and high school students, particularly underrepresented and under-served, in the field of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math (STEAM) using culturally relevant tools through skills building programs.

We want to invent & inspire, imagine & innovate, investigate & inquire, and initiate & improvise.

And we want to smile, laugh and have fun!
