Scholars in the program receive firsthand exposure to STEM professions that are in high demand in the United States and throughout the world. Interactive simulations, hands-on workshops and educational site visits provide opportunities for discovery in fields such as engineering, health care and environmental science. Students also gain valuable college exposure while residing on the campus of Loyola University.
