Summer STEM Accelerator

This extremely competitive science technology and engineering summer program engage K12 students in using STEM knowledge and application to design solutions to everyday problems. It combines scientific theory with technology research. Students also have a chance to grow their entrepreneurial skills and mindset through designing and launching a real business of their own. This experience connects students to many of the best entrepreneurial networks and leaders across the world for instruction and best practices.

Students will read the most current research or literature in the field they choose to study, draft and execute a detailed proposal and research plan. The culmination of the project is a virtual conference-style video presentation, supported by written reports on their findings.

Student Awards

High school students between their junior and senior years may compete for awards of up to $120K. The selection process is very competitive. Although prior research experience is not required, the application is time-intensive and requires essays and a school nomination. Each high school may only nominate a maximum of three students or teams to compete for awards.

The program consists of hands-on research under the direct guidance of a one-on-one mentor. Applicants may do STEM research on a wide range of topics including:

NSF's 10 Big Ideas

Line following robots

Robotic arms

Medical and consumer robotic solutions

Teaching formats:


Teaching formats include interactive lectures, STEM simulations, business simulations, entrepreneur panels, and the actual design and launch of a company. Lecture and simulation topics cover a range of business skills and leadership skills that translate directly into practical application.
