Summer STEM Circles

Our STEM Circles Circles offer a variety of topics for rising middle and high school students. These are designed to be one-week long with each STEM Circle focused on a single theme related to STEM and STEAM topics.

Program information

It is our pleasure to offer a variety of STEM/STEAM Summer STEM circles this summer at different locations. Each session is one week long and you can sign up your child for one or more session based on their interests.

These Summer STEM circles are for students who will be rising into 7th to 12th grades in Fall 2024.

Please Note:

  • Due to our funding restrictions, priority is given to students in Northern New Mexico in the following counties: Santa Fe, Taos, San Miguel, Mora, Sandoval, Rio Arriba, and Los Alamos.
  • All sessions will run from 9 AM to 3 PM Monday through Friday, but locations will differ.
  • Lunch will be provided and we will work hard to provide the parents with the menu the week before each session. We try to accommodate special special dietary requests but students with significant food allergies/intolerances or those who follow a strict diet should be prepared to bring their own lunch.
  • We will provide snacks before and after lunch to help keep our students fueled and alert during the day. Snack donations are welcome! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions on which types of snacks to provide.
  • Registration is on a first come first serve basis and space is limited. You will receive an email informing you that your child has either been enrolled or placed on a waiting list if the limit is reached.
  • The non-refundable registration fee covers the one-week session, lunch, and a t-shirt.
  • Early registration fees are $20 per student and regular registration fees are $25 per student.
  • Donations are accepted and appreciated!
  • The Aviation and Aerospace Summer STEM Circle is for girls only. We welcome non-binary and gender nonconforming students who are comfortable being in a girl-supported environment.
