The ARC/ORNL Summer STEM Program is a residential,
hands-on learning experience for Appalachia's high school
and middle school students, as well as high school
teachers in STEM-related fields. Hosted by Oak Ridge Associated
Universities in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, this program is a gateway
to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in the
Appalachian Region. Many participants come from
economically distressed counties and often gain their
first exposure to applied science and STEM
education through this experience. More
