IN THE NEWS
Check out what current STEM Scholars have to say about their experience in the program.
"I've met a lot of different people that work in different fields of science, and they have all shared their discoveries with us. The new technologies and ideas are amazing; most of the things I've learned from [presenters] are sort of surreal." ~ Jahmere, Junior
"Knowing that people like Dr. Bertley want you to succeed is very motivating. STEM Scholars adds to the knowledge I get in [high school] classes by giving me hands-on ways to practice what I learn. The program also has done a wonderful job of supporting us through the college search process. The SAT prep classes were especially helpful, and thanks to them I raised my score by 400 points, which opened a new range of college possibilities for me." ~ Korah, Senior
"This spring was very fun. We met the first African-American pilot to fly all around the world. We went to the Science Festival. We worked on making a vaccine for Parkinson's Disease. The presenters that were brought to us were very influential to me and my classmates." ~ Joseph, Junior
"The STEM Scholars program is very exciting and interesting. There is so much to learn and do." ~ Akalia, Freshman
"I would recommend the internship [program] because it is a very revealing internship, everyone there was helpful and understood that my goal was to learn something new, do things I've never done. And I got just that." ~ Jalisa, Senior, regarding her internship at Fox Chase Cancer Center
"We are pleased to inform you that our daughter has enjoyed the STEM program so far! Thank you so much for what you and your staff have done to training our future scientists, engineers, technologists and mathematicians. We look forward to next round of the program. Keep up the good work for our children!" ~ Parents of a STEM Scholars Sophomore
