Benefits of STEM summer camps for high school students
Fun, cool career opportunities
There is a common misconception that STEM is all coding and lab coats. Of course, disciplines like coding are a huge part of STEM, but the act of coding extends beyond a computer screen and complex languages. STEM is found in sports, music, film, and other forms of entertainment. Video game design? Awesome. Social media? Yes. STEM touches a multitude of subjects, which means there are related careers available for any interest imaginable.
Skill-building for a lucrative, in-demand job landscape
We all want our kids to enjoy what they end up doing for a living, but we also want them to find something that compensates well. Bluntly, STEM jobs pay well, with median earnings nearly double that of non-STEM counterparts. Even better, these aren’t "cross your fingers," once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. Millions of STEM jobs are going unfilled every year, and the only scarcity is the talent available to fill them. Such skill-building takes place at a STEM camp.
