INL’s STEM Scholars Program is a summer camp for eastern Idaho students in grades one through 12 that provides hands-on experience with a variety of STEM topics during daily in-person camps. The theme of this year’s camps is “Paving the Path to a Net-Zero Future,” which features age-appropriate research activities related to INL’s net-zero mission.
Held weekly during July, the summer camps are free to the public, with supplies, lunch and field trip costs provided free of charge. Each camp will be held daily at University Place in Idaho Falls over the course of one week, beginning each day at 9 a.m. and concluding at 4 p.m.
Registration for 2022 STEM Scholars Summer Camps is now closed. Parents who registered their children will receive confirmation of their enrollment.
The camps for elementary school students will focus on how their decisions affect the community and environment, focusing on learning the basics of sustainable practices, waste streams and water quality. Students will learn through hands-on, place-based projects. They will work on various projects and take field trips associated with reaching net-zero.
Note: All camp schedules may be adjusted as needed.
This camp will focus on the emerging field of green energy in eastern Idaho. Students will participate in field research around the region and learn about the technologies involved and their benefits and costs to humans and the environment. Students will learn how INL is working on research to reach a clean energy future.
