Summer STE(A)M Experiences

Engage, Learn, Create and Inspire

Every summer, the Science, Engineering and Mathematics Institute (SEMI) engages middle and high school students from across the greater San Antonio area, as well as students entering their freshman year in college, in a variety of summer camps.

  • Not only including STEM, but multidisciplinary STEAM (our camps incorporate the Arts!).
  • Many of our campers have the opportunity to work with college faculty doing real scientific research.
  • Many of our camps are free.
