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.
The program continues for 3 more workshops at the Canton Public Library on the days and times listed below. Space is limited. Registration for the bus ride to Ann Arbor also registers each student for the remaining workshop sesssions at the library.
