Studying the Sciences at Stetson University

Thinking of studying science? Our action-packed, one-day exploration is designed for ambitious STEM students currently in grades 7-12 on Saturday, June 11, 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM at Sage Hall. This camp will give students a true feel for studying science. They will work with two college professors, chat with current Stetson STEM students, sit down with local professionals, discuss potential STEM career paths, and see Stetson’s beautiful campus and science facilities. In the course of the day, students will perform two college-level, hands-on labs and participate in group problem-solving activities. Stetson will provide a boxed lunch (though students are welcome to bring their own).
