VIL STEM Program at TU

Free Summer STEM Enrichment program for Middle School Students

Every student deserves access to a better future. That’s why we’ve launched the Verizon Innovative Learning STEM Achievers program– an engaging, hands-on program developed to enrich learning through design thinking, 3D printing, augmented reality, social entrepreneurship, and mentorship. This program creates a more diverse pipeline for future careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math).

The program is part of Verizon’s education initiative which addresses barriers to digital inclusion and is a key program under Citizen Verizon, the company’s responsible business plan to help move the world forward for all, aiming to reach 10M youth with digital skills training by 2030. Every student deserves access to a better future. Verizon launched the Verizon Innovative Learning STEM Achievers program to empower underserved middle school students to explore STEM subjects.

The Verizon Innovative Learning STEM Achievers program provides students from under-resourced middle schools with a supportive STEM-enrichment educational experience. Additionally, the program is aligned with project-based learning opportunities connected to real world challenges and invites STEM learning, career exploration, and personal development. The program is inclusive and welcomes all genders and non-binary youth. This program begins with a 3-week in-person session this summer from July 1st – 19th, 2024. Food and transportation will be provided!

Applications for teaching assistants/mentors (undergraduate and graduate students) and program instructors (middle and high school educators) for the 2024 summer program are now being accepted. Find out more in Join Our Team  section below.
