What is Summer of Innovation?
Several organizations from across the Southern Tier have united to offer unique learning opportunities for children and young adults during the summer months. These organizations have a common goal of extending the traditional school year into a third summer semester. Our offerings have another purpose as well – to provide students with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) skills that are essential to their success in the future.
Partnering organizations include:
- Alfred State College
- Alfred University
- Arnot Health/Central New York Area Health Education Center
- Elmira College
- GST BOCES
- MST Connect
- Notre Dame High School
- The National Soaring Museum
- The Science & Discovery Center
