Each year we have industry experts in fields across (STEAM) Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math join us for panel discussions to share their career experience and answer questions from the students.

At the close of the program each year our student teams present to a panel of judges to compete for fun prizes.  Parents are invited to join us to be a part of this exciting moment where students share their experience and what they have learned over the 10 days with us.
