In 2021, STEM Explorers Summer Program started with 21 students from Trenton and Mercer County joining us online for a summer of STEM exploration through virtual field trips and hands-on experiments. In 2022, a cohort of 22 students joined us for the first time in person for another amazing summer of STEM. STEM Explorers had the chance to visit colleges, hear from captivating guest speakers, and participate in hands-on and innovative experiments.
This past summer marked our biggest year yet. With fresh, captivating topics and experiments, an expanded group of 30 students, a buzzing career fair, and inspiring new guest speakers, we orchestrated our most incredible summer to date.
As we reflect on our journey, we celebrate the growth of our program, the expanding horizons of our students, and the unwavering passion for STEM that continues to fuel our mission. The STEM Explorers Summer Program isn’t just a summer camp; it’s a chance for students to explore and discover their passions, and we invite you to be part of this exciting chapter in our story.

I am a passionate educator with over 10 years of experience working with youth of all ages and a masters in STEM Education. I believe that STEM should be accessible to all students, and I enjoy leading students through STEM activities and experiments to spark and deepen their interests. I see STEM education as a pathway to help engage students and expose them to different career paths, develop their 21st century skill sets, and work on their communication, collaboration, and creativity skills. I am excited to lead you through an amazing summer! I speak Spanish.
