Seminars 2016

A highlight of our Summer Academy was a series of STEM Lectures delivered by University Faculty and Researches on a wide range of STEM topics. These presentations exposed student to college-level material and offered a glimpse of original research and career pathways in each discipline. They were supported by Study Sections to help students understand the lectures and extend their knowledge with hands-on activities and tours of University labs and facilities.
