Kettering opens registration for STEM summer programs

FLINT, Michigan—A recent grant from the Child Welfare Society of Flint is helping Kettering University provide even more children from low-income families the opportunity to attend one of their many STEM-themed pre-college programs this summer.


The $2,500 grant will help Kettering reach more kids of all ages who want to explore their passion for STEM. The camps begin in June and run through August with opportunities for youths from first through 12th grades.


The Pre-College Programs offer residential and nonresidential courses and camps that cover STEM-themed topics such as cybersecurity, rockets, Java and autonomous programming, 3D printing, robotics, and more. The programs also include “Doctor for a Day” and “Math Olympiad” among the daylong and residential camps.


“Kettering has a special opportunity and commitment to help change lives and set students on a path to achieve their dreams,” said Cherie Taylor, assistant director of Pre-College Programs at Kettering University. “With this generous gift, families that have financial challenges will still have an opportunity to participate.”


Students can register for camps now at For scholarship opportunities, an email must be sent to [email protected] or [email protected].
