2021 GetSET Application Info

This unique  STEM program introduces incoming high school freshman to a variety of engineering disciplines and real world situations through a variety of hands-on workshops and events. This program is a four-year annual commitment, and participants return each summer until they graduate from high school.


Traditionally this event is hosted at a local college campus in mid-July and includes overnight stays.  Due to Covid-19 restrictions it will be hosted virtually until we can return to the on-site residential format.
