While this page will never cover all the opportunities available to our STEM students, we will add opportunities as they are brought to our attention.
Summer At ASMSA is an exciting program where students entering the eighth, ninth and 10th grade can participate in fun sessions focusing on math, foreign language, science and art.

Three week residential summer program provides informal peer mentoring by engaging students in faculty research projects, allowing high school students to establish early contact with college students and professors in specific areas of their interest. The High School Research Program includes intense research work, but the students have a lot of fun during their stay at UALR.
The objective of the Engineering Scholars Program is to increase the number of students entering engineering programs in Arkansas through exposure to hands-on engineering projects, plant trips, and interaction with industry engineers. In addition, the one-week residential summer program includes counseling and advising sessions to assist students in preparing for college.
The NSTI is a fun and interactive two-week residential program for high school students that permits exploration of various transportation fields and careers (land, water, air, and safety). Classes in English, science, math, and technology provide the necessary foundation to understand the concepts that students utilize during field excursions, projects, labs and hands-on activities that are related to transportation.
The IT Careers Camp is designed to increase student (and parent) awareness of the many kinds of information technology (IT) careers available. As Information Technology is a broad and diverse field, many students (and parents) are simply unaware of all the opportunities that exist and what kind of educational preparation is most appropriate. In short, information technology careers span the spectrum from very technical (i.e. programming or networking) to the less technical (i.e. technical writing or IT project management).
