MELBOURNE, FLA. — Florida Tech is offering a six-week summer program for high school sophomores, juniors and seniors that provides chemistry, calculus, physics and other courses specifically designed to prepare students with diverse educational backgrounds for a STEM-focused education in college.
The Pre-College STEM Pathway Program offers live, virtual classes supervised by Florida Tech faculty members Monday through Thursday from June 21 through July 30.
The courses offered are: College Algebra Review; Applied Statistical Analysis; Introductory Chemistry; Calculus Refresher; Introduction to Genetics and Biochemistry; and Introduction to Physics.
Participants may enroll in more than one class – they are scheduled so as not to overlap – and have the option to attend synchronously or asynchronously. The cost is $300 per course.
Each Friday will feature 90-minute virtual enrichment sessions that will include a variety of events such as career panels with industry partners and STEM professionals and an undergraduate program expo.
Because this is a non-credit program, it will include learning activities that are meant to serve as enrichment opportunities in place of exams and assessments. Students who complete the course activities will be provided with certificates of completion.
The STEM Pathway program is partially sponsored by Leonardo DRS and Collins Aerospace. Financial support may be available.
