Add “STEM” to your child’s summer plans.
This summer, NYC students can participate in FREE camps, internships, and experiential learning opportunities through STEM Matters NYC, the NYC Department of Education’s hands-on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning program for City public school students.
From now until Tuesday, April 19, City students who will be entering grades kindergarten through 12 in September 2022 can apply for a variety of exciting summer programs located across the five boroughs. Students entering grades K–9 can participate in weeklong camps at places like the NY Aquarium and the Bronx Zoo, while students entering grades 10–12 this September will be able to apply for internships at the Genovesi Environmental Study Center and the NYC Center for Aerospace and Applied Mathematics, as well as two-week courses at outstanding creative workspaces like UrbanGlass and MakerSpace NYC.
