  • Program Details:

    Our mission is to provide STEM opportunities for elementary and middle school students underrepresented in the STEM fields. PROPEL is the elementary level program and Level Up for middle school students. Our programs run in three sessions: 9 weeks in the fall, 9 weeks in the spring, and summer camps. Students are challenged throughout the program to engage in a curriculum that promotes critical thinking and collaboration. The fall session theme changes each year to provide engaging experiences for the different grade levels. Spring sessions are focused around VEX robotics, where students combine their engineering, problem-solving, and computer science skills to compete in a program-wide robotics competition. In the summer, students are given a choice of STEM subject-matter courses that best suit their interests. 

    This program allows students to engage in STEM opportunities that takes their learning to new heights. The program encourages students to pursue honors, AP, and IB classes in the STEM field and hopefully choose a future career in STEM.

    The program provides learning for families as well as students to outline the best track for their children to achieve their higher-learning goals. Each month, a parent newsletter is sent to families that gives program highlights, future opportunities, and dates for parent learning sessions.
