The Cooper Union Summer STEM Program offers introductory and advanced design and engineering classes for current freshman, sophomore and junior high school students. Summer STEM is an opportunity to try engineering for the first time or to dive deeper into engineering team work. Each 3- or 6-week class covers college-level topics and activities completed by The Cooper Union undergraduates in their first or second year. This selective program encourages all curious, compassionate, and college-interested students to apply regardless of prior experience.
