Greening Your Future and Future Trek: STEM Careers

Students in grades 6-8 explore STEM careers and experience the interdisciplinary nature of science today in these FREE, fun and fast-paced high-impact small group sessions scheduled throughout the school year. Fully funded by Academy donors, with generous lead support from The Boeing Company, STEM Career programs are offered at no cost to schools in the region and directly impact more than 1,500 students at a pivotal time in their lives when they are laying the science and technology path for their futures.

Greening Your Future and Future Trek Science Careers Explorations are open to student groups in grades 6-8 from private, public, independent and home schools throughout the region.

Check out our College Handbook for Middle School Students, with information for students interested in pursuing STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) careers. It's a great resource for high school students as well.

Interested in hands-on and exclusive science opportunities outside of school? Check out the Junior Academy of Science.
