STEAM Academy Youth Programs

For nearly a decade, Indiana Tech’s popular summer camps have introduced hundreds of middle school and high school students to the exciting world of engineering, computer science and technology.

Thanks to a grant from Lilly Endowment Inc., Indiana Tech is pleased to announce the creation of the STEAM Academy youth program—a home for expanded and new camp offerings for K-12 students and a variety of after-school programs.

Career Explorer Club

To introduce the STEAM Academy to the community, middle school students are invited to become part of the Career Explorer Club. It’s an opportunity for kids to explore careers and discover possibilities for their future in STEAM fields. They will participate in hands-on activities and receive mentorship from highly qualified university faculty, all in a safe and professional learning environment.
