STEM Academy





We have been very attentive to the medical concerns surrounding the coronavirus (COVID 19) and related protocols that are in place. In response, it has been determined that it is in the best interest of our entire citizenry and the most prudent action to take in cancelling the Academy for this upcoming summer.  Additionally, as we plan on holding the summer camp in the future, please continue to monitor information on our page for updates. 


Expanding Opportunities in STEM

The FGCU STEM Academy improves students' prospects by exposing young minds to careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and by helping them improve math skills.

Support the Academy

Many of the high school freshmen, sophomores and juniors who participate in our program come from underserved and underrepresented backgrounds and aspire to be first-generation collegians. Your support can help us continue to provide them a path toward higher education and promising careers.
