STEM-X Summer 2020 Programs

Programs Open to Students From All School Districts

STEM-X Summer 2020 applications portal is closed. Please see update below.

4/27/2020 Update:

During these unprecedented times, our STEM-X and Futures Lab leadership have made the difficult decision that we will not run STEM-X 2020 due to our commitment to the safety of your children and our greater community. Please read this letter from our director and founder, John Howe: STEM-X 2020 cancellation letter

As is true for all non-profit enterprises, STEM-X is self-funded and this cancellation is a difficult financial blow. Some families may be interested in sending us a donation, which we would gratefully accept here, to help ensure that we can recover and continue to offer the program every year.

For the past 11 years, the STEM Institutes has operated with a vision to create STEM confidence and competence in ALL students. It began at one school serving 76 students and has now grown to 4 Poudre School District schools and we anticipate a 2019 enrollment of about 800! Originally, our offerings were strictly focused on only traditionally understood science, technology, engineering and math topics. As we have grown over the years, we have recognized that no discipline exists in isolation and that all learning is interdisciplinary. For example, is a digital art class art OR technology? The answer is simple; it is art AND technology or expressing art through technology. Therefore, our new STEM – X brand embodies the idea that STEM is important and that it is an inclusive term that can represent all the STEM entry points students can experience.

Without high-quality, knowledge-intensive jobs and the innovative enterprises that lead to discovery and new technology, our economy will suffer and our people will face a lower standard of living.

STEM – X thanks you for your continued support!
