STEAHM Summer Workshop
@ SUNY Corning Community College
Full STEAHM Ahead!
The Full STEAHM Ahead! Summer Workshop is a week long program at SUNY Corning Community College for area middle school girls focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Health, and Math education. The program will be on the Spencer Hill campus of SUNY Corning Community College (1 Academic Dr., Corning, NY 14830).
There will be two sessions, July 18-22, 2022 for students completing 6th or 7th grade or those entering 6th or 7th grade, and August 1-5, 2022 for students completing 4th or 5th grade or entering 4th or 5th grade from Steuben, Schuyler, or Chemung counties are eligible to apply.
The program fee is $100, which includes daily lunches. Scholarships and transportation are available by request and dependent on our available funds.
Due to our limited capacity this summer we cannot accept any late applications. Students/parents will be notified by email and mail of their acceptance to the program by June 17, 2022. COVID protocols, waivers, photo release, transportation requests, scholarship results, and schedule will all be shared at that time.
This program is designed to increase STEM confidence by showing students the connections between fields and giving them positive women role models. During the week on the campus of Corning Community College, last year, 28 girls attended workshops on STEAHM (science, technology, engineering, arts, health, and math), participate in a career panel featuring women in a variety of STEAHM fields, and experience college life with campus tours, cafeteria dining, and a student information panel.
Middle school is often the time at which all students, but especially girls, choose between the arts and the sciences. According to stereotype research, many girls choose not to pursue STEM education despite their aptitude. At SUNY Corning Community College we see a gender gap in the STEM fields.
Workshop topics included:
- 3 Dimensional Design
- Fibonacci Sequence (math)
- And many others!
