STEM Summer Institute
Select students from across Middle Tennessee can apply to participate in our STEM Summer Institute, Harpeth Hall's premier research-based STEM summer program where girls use the engineering design process to solve real-world problems as they create, build, and test prototype solutions. As they learn, campers visit local laboratories and engage with a diverse group of women in STEM careers. At the end of the two-week experience, students present their projects to a team of STEM professionals to gain feedback and greater understanding. The application for summer 2022 is now available. Log in to the registration portal and apply before April 15 to be considered. Interested students must provide a teacher or counselor reference as part of the application process.
