Sioux Falls-area students packed a lot of hands-on learning into three days this month as part of a new STEM mini-camp organized by the Sioux Falls Development Foundation.
The event, hosted in partnership with Augustana University, brought incoming sixth through 10th graders onto the campus and into area businesses for a hands-on look at opportunities their future could hold.
“This new program builds on others where we’ve seen considerable success, including Your Future STEM activities during the school year and Career Connections where we’re immersing students into workplaces and educating about career opportunities,” said Denise Guzzetta, vice president of workforce development for the Sioux Falls Development Foundation.
“Thanks to the engagement of Augustana leaders, students and professors as well as a huge range of area businesses, we’re providing a summer experience for students that will make a lasting impression. Based on the huge early response we’ve seen, this is a program that’s only going to grow.”
