"REENGINEERING THE STEAM PIPELINE"
After much thought and consideration, we have decided that Global Health Connections International (GHCI) will not host its 2020 SUMMER STEAM Camp.
After five (5) years of hosting a very successful, free 2-week summer enrichment program, it is time for GHCI to take the time required to understand the data collected, review our programs, and determine how to best support our STEAM pipeline scholars.
This summer our first cohort of students will be entering college. With all the feedback from university students, professors, parents, and partners, it is important for us to understand how we should build future programs to undergird the success of our young STEAM scholars.
We must continue to nurture our young scholars. We must continue to provide them with MORE tools to become successful STEAM professionals. As such, we are taking Summer 2020 to reengineer our STEAM programs.
We will, however, continue to sponsor STEAM programs and events that will expose students to career opportunities. The first event will be a STEM FLY-IN on February 22nd at 10:00 AM. This will be a collaboration between GHCI, United States Navy and UPS. Click here for more information
In summation, in life, it is critical to take inventory and to understand one's needs. We believe after five years, it is time for GHCI to do just that. The journey ahead is filled with much promise. With much anticipated excitement, we are preparing for that journey to meet the needs of our young scholars!
