Mississippi Valley State University has been reinforcing the importance of STEM education this summer during two academic enrichment programs. Girls excelling in mathematics and science, also known as 'GEMS' and 'The summer bridge' programs. As part of the GEMS program, 20 local middle school girls are being exposed to stem careers and professionals through trips and hands-on projects. The summer bridge program targets 23 recent high school graduates and focuses on strengthening their skills in STEM education as they transition from high school to college. The three-week programs end Friday. The programs are funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of STEM Changers, customized high-quality approaches necessary to graduate, excite and retain STEM students.
