Our Commitment to the Next Generation

The STEM Programs distinguishes itself by being the only professional development program to offer its curriculum entirely in Spanish to talented young scholars and instructors from low-income and underserved backgrounds.

The Science & Innovation Summer Camp and the Professional Workshop for STEM Instructors Series exposes all of it participants, in equal male: female ratios, to elite one-on-one collaborations with university scientists & researches in a wide range of studies, while simultaneously having the opportunity to exchange their cultural background and further develop their leadership skills in a multi-region setting only the STEM Programs can provide.

Through its local and international programming, the Institute of the Americas is able to encourage and shape students to become scientific leaders in the 21st century.
