Through a series of four interactive workshops, students will get to meet the U-M faculty or alumni who work in the STEM related fields every day. They are also given tools to help them take charge of their educational future and given assistance in setting realistic goals to get them into STEM fields in college.
The program begins with a U-M campus visit in Ann Arbor for each student and one caregiver. A bus will leave from Canton Public Library at 9 AM on Saturday, April 26. After a visit to a working science lab, campus tour, lunch with faculty and students and presentations by U-M admissions staff, the bus will return to the library around 3:00 PM.

Canton Public Library’s mission is Connecting Your Community. Connect Your Summer aims to be an exciting way to bring the community together to share their summer experiences and their summer reading, and to emphasize the library as an important resource for all.
Because Connect Your Summer is the mainstay of our summer library programming, we are asking you to help us learn and improve by sharing feedback about your Connect Your Summer experience. The survey will take about five minutes to complete:

- If you did not participate, Share your feedback
The surveys will remain available until August 26, so tell your friends! Thank you in advance for sharing your thoughts with us. As a token of our appreciation, there may even be something badge-y in it for you.
