Women in STEM

Check back in fall 2019 for summer 2020 dates!

Temple University’s Women in STEM program invites female high school students entering grades 9 through 12 to learn about careers in STEM and develop real-world problem-solving skills through this two-week, non-credit summer pre-college program.

You’ll meet other motivated students who are considering majoring in a STEM field in college, as well as dedicated instructors and alumni who are leading the way in architecture, engineering, urban studies, computer science, health, and more.

During your two weeks on campus, you will participate in:

  • STEM Design Challenge – Philadelphia’s climate is changing. Over time, this will lead to challenges in architecture, public health, food supplies, and more. In this STEM challenge, you’ll work in small groups to apply STEM problem-solving skills to develop and design products and services to address problems arising from the changing climate. You’ll be introduced to manufacturing technologies and key concepts in various STEM fields.
  • Field Trips – Travel within the Philadelphia region to meet women working in STEM, especially Temple alumni! Hear about their career paths and how they use science, technology, engineering, and math every day in their jobs. Field trips will vary, so you’ll get the chance to explore several different kinds of careers in the sciences.
  • College Resource Seminars – Learn about resources available to help you succeed in college, from going through the admissions process to choosing a major to graduating on time.

This program is offered by the Office of Summer and Special Programs in proud partnership with Temple University's:

  • College of Engineering
  • Tyler School of Art's architecture program
  • College of Liberal Arts' Geography and Urban Studies program
