 Summer Stem at The Cooper Union

Cooper Union's Summer STEM Program application  is now open! Please encourage any interested students to apply. The program is open to current high school freshman, sophomores, and juniors. Need-based financial aid is available for the program!

The Summer STEM program offers three-week programs for freshman and six-week programs for sophomores and juniors that immerses students in hands-on engineering design and problem-solving.

Faculty and teaching assistants from the departments of civil, chemical, electrical, and mechanical engineering provide students with foundational knowledge and expert guidance to address real-world problems in their respective disciplines of expertise.

Students also attend workshops on college and career planning, presentation, and writing skills. Most projects include at least one field trip to a local business, museum, or exhibition to enhance the students’ experience. This program culminates with each group presenting their work to an audience of invited guests.

We expect that many admitted students who spend their summer with us go on to pursue a STEM career simply because they are already interested in these fields. We are also welcoming students who may not be convinced that a STEM career is for them and just want to explore.

  • 2020 Projects descriptions are found here. Students will select their first and second choice on their application.
  • Three-Week Dates: Monday, July 6 – Thursday, July 23; or Monday, August 3 – Thursday, August 20

Syracuse University iSchool Summer Program

It Girls is Becoming a Two-Week, On-Campus Summer Program

An innovative School of Information Studies (iSchool) weekend program that gives high school women an introduction to information technology (IT) and related careers will be providing a more full-fledged version of that IT immersion this year as a two-week summer experience.

 

The It Girls program will now be available as a two-week pre-college course through Syracuse University’s Summer College. The expanded model will provide a more in-depth academic experience for participants and more time for them to experience what college life is like on the Syracuse University campus.

 

All It Girls program operational aspects, including registration, will now be coordinated by Summer College. The changeover permits iSchool to focus exclusively on creating and delivering enhanced and cutting-edge academic content for the extended version of the program.

 

It Girls runs this summer in Session I of Summer College, from June 27 through July 10.

Scholarships and financial assistance will be available to qualifying students. Online applications open this December 16.

 

Introduction to Information Technology

 

The iSchool developed the It Girls program in 2011 to create a pathway for high school girls to have an introduction to the field of IT and consider it as an academic and career path, and more than 700 young women have enjoyed the experience since the program’s start.

 

For eight years, the program has packed a college orientation and campus tour, faculty-led mini course, team hackathon event, inspirational speakers and social activities into a 27-hour schedule. Participants have been able to become acquainted with iSchool staff, faculty, current students, and academic offerings; and connected to alumni and influential women who work in the field. All those elements will continue as part of the new offering. The longer format will increase the amount of time dedicated to IT-focused learning, providing an experience more reflective of current academic and career possibilities in the field.

 

A “Mini University”

 

Summer College at Syracuse University operates as a mini university. The pre-college academic institute is celebrating its 60th year in 2020. Its sole, year-round focus is designing and delivering course experience programs to high school students through programs of from one to six weeks in duration. It hosts about 700 high school students for more than 60 pre-college credit and non-credit study programs and campus immersion experiences each season.

 

Summer College administers all essential services for those programs, including a two-day campus orientation, housing and dining services, and the staffing of student living, health, registration, and academic affairs operations. It will also do so for the It Girls program now.

 

Administrators report that the Summer College experience generally provides attendees with significant personal growth, a heightened sense of readiness for college, more excitement about the college experience and a clearer understanding of what it takes to succeed in college-level courses.

 

Applications Open December 16

 

The It Girls program is joining four other course offerings whose content is provided by the iSchool through Summer College:

Coding: Learning to Code

Information Reporting & Presentation: Engage, Persuade and Succeed

Social Media Strategy and Analytics

Cybersecurity: Hackathon Challenge

 High School Students: Earn College Credit with Online Course for Advanced Study of Data Structures

Replaces Old AP Computer Science AB Course

Are you a high school student interested in the challenging, lucrative field of computer science? Would you like to get a head start on college and your career?

Illinois Institute of Technology offers the online course CS 331: Data Structures and Algorithms for high school students that will allow you to earn three hours of college credit (C or better usually required) and lay an exceptional technical foundation for college courses and your career.

CS 331: Data Structures and Algorithms replaces the old AP Computer Science AB course. It gives you more depth in data structures, which are foundational for advanced computer science courses.

You can take the course entirely online, with your high school and IIT teachers and IIT teaching assistants available to assist you. Illinois Tech is the Midwest's premier technology university, with a long history of graduating rigorously prepared scientists and engineers. This is the eighth year IIT has offered this unique program, and more than 300 high school students have successfully completed the course.

Your teacher:

CS 331 is offered through IIT’s Department of Computer Science and will be taught by Michael Saelee, a senior instructor. Saelee’s lectures will be posted online alongside slides and screencasts, allowing you to review them on demand the entire semester. CS teachers at your school will also be given materials to assist you with the programming assignments, and a dedicated IIT teaching assistant is also assigned to help all high school students.

You will learn:

To be eligible, you must have completed a CS1-equivalent course of the AP CS A course/exam with a score of 5, or a score of 4 with your Computer Science teacher recommendation, and you must enroll in a data structures or independent computer science course at your high school in Spring 2020 that you can take in conjunction with the IIT course. We estimate the time commitment for a student is six to ten hours per week. Please note that some universities will not accept the IIT credit for this course unless you have Introductory Programming credit from the AP CS A exam.

CS 331 is free for Chicago Public School students and offered at a discounted price of $250 for all other students. The application form will be available from July 1, 2019 through September 30, 2019. For more information, please contact precollege@iit.edu.
