SATELLITE is a five day STEM outreach and leadership development program with the goal of exposing high school sophomores across underserved communities in North Carolina to STEM careers and post-secondary educational opportunities. The program this year will run from May 9th through the 13th. The application requires two letters of recommendation and a few short essays pertaining to the student’s interest in STEM. Due to the nature of the program, we do not consider a student’s academic success when reviewing applications. We are looking only for a student’s desire to maximize their experience at SATELLITE. The deadline to apply is February 28th, 2020. The program costs $30, but a limited number of need-based scholarships are available.
"My brother recommended it because I’m not good under pressure or having a lot of stress and he says that in stem all that will go away because of the presentations. I want to not be shy and be good at talking to people".
"I would love to join the STEM program because it would be a great opportunity for me to show my creativity and ideas. I'm looking forward to working in groups and getting a hands-on learning experience. I believe that STEM will challenge me because it will help me get in touch with the technology and engineering side. Overall I feel like STEM will benefit my future toward my career".
