Dr. Young Rae Kim, assistant professor of curriculum and instruction, and his team hosted Hola STEM, a summer school program for students aged 9 to 11 from Harlandale ISD. Nineteen students participated in the two-week camp held July 23 - August 2. Funded by the University's Strategic Planning Initiative Seed Fund, the program sought to develop a seamless pathway that supports students' increased interest and engagement in STEM majors and bridges their knowledge into the next school year. The Hola STEM campers learned science, math and engineering through participation in mathematical modeling activities, math storybook and integrated STEM activities including coding and robotics.
