Ten students from Mesa Public Schools received a sampling of what a career in the health and engineering fields would be like during a four-week program designed to help them prepare for jobs in those fields.
The students participated in the STEM Scholars Project, presented by the East Valley Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
The pilot program, funded in part through a grant from Mesa Counts on College and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, introduced students to enrichment activities and paired them with mentors.
Students took field trips to the Arizona Science Center, Arizona State University’s Polytechnic and Tempe campuses, Mesa Community College, Mercy Gilbert Medical Center and Intel.
