APPLY to the STEM Summer Institute (SSI) where you will have the chance to do it all. The SSI takes girls through a research based STEM curriculum where girls use the engineering design process to solve real world problems.

This summer, the Lwala Community Alliance has partnered with the SSI program and asked the participants to solve a challenge facing the Lwala community in Kenya, Africa. Just think, your work could help girls around the world!

Financial Aid available for all sessions. Transportation assistance to our campus is also available for Davidson County residents.

Applications due April 15, 2020
