Summer STEM Programs

Rensselaer Pipeline Initiatives welcomes collaborations with corporations, foundations, schools and school districts to offer summer programs for underrepresented and economically disadvantaged students. Past collaborations include the following:

  • We worked with the New York State to offer the NYS5STEM Summer Program on campus for middle school students from New York City and Yonkers, in the summers of 2008 & 2009. 
  • Rensselaer was selected by the Harris Foundation to host the ExxonMobil Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp from 2008 through 2017; this is a two week-long project-based, residential camp for capital region 6th, 7th and 8th grade students.
  • From 2012 through 2019, General Electric tapped Rensselaer to host GE Girls at Rensselaer, a one-week long day camp for girls entering the 8th grade from Schenectady.
  • From 2012 through 2019, we collaborated with The Harlem Academy to provide a 3-day, collegiate experience for 5th through 8th grade middle school school students
  • From 2014-2018, in collaboration with RPI's Center for Initiatives in Pre-College Education, we helped to host a week-long, residential technology and science infused camp for 7th grade students from the City of Amsterdam.
