Summer STEM 2020
Summer STEM 2020 is online with all new classes.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis in New York City, the STEM Outreach program in the Alfred Nerken School of Engineering of The Cooper Union is moving to online programs that will work with high school students to study and practice design and engineering in their homes and communities. Summer STEM will offer three week programs for current high school freshman, sophomores, juniors and seniors in design, engineering and hands-on problem-solving. Class projects will cover topics from current problems in civil, chemical, electrical, and mechanical engineering. Students gain knowledge in an engineering field and guidance to address a real-world problem by designing and engineering a solution. Students who attend the program and successfully complete the assignments will receive a certificate of completion from The Cooper Union.
