2020 Pre-College STEM Pathway Program

Florida Tech is offering a 6-week, virtual Pre-College STEM Pathway Summer Program, beginning on June 22, 2020. In response to the disruptions caused by the pandemic of COVID-19, our 6-week summer program is specifically designed to prepare students with diverse backgrounds for the basic math and science courses that are essential for their STEM majors. Whether you are a high school student (with or without IB or AP credits), a freshman, or a transfer student, we believe you would benefit greatly from attending one or more of our basic, college-level math and science classes. Your experience will include virtual enrichment sessions, in which you will meet with STEM professionals from academia and industry who will help you explore career and internship opportunities. The courses developed by Florida Tech faculty and graduate students will include live virtual sessions with your instructors. Because this is a non-credit program, it will include a variety of learning activities that are meant to serve as enrichment opportunities in place of exams and assessments. Students who complete the course activities will be provided with certificates of completion.

The program is FREE for all students who have already committed to joining Florida Tech in the Summer of 2020 or beyond.

Full or partial funding is also available for high school students based on need. Email Dr. Munevver Mine Subasi (msubasi@fit.edu) to receive a special discount code.

You can choose one or more from a menu of four courses included in the Program. Please use the links below to register the course(s) you are interested in.
